We believe that the roots of the current honeybee crisis may well be found in the practices of agribusiness and that at least one solution is in the hands of backyard beekeepers. To that end, Terra Nova offers apiary services to encourage beekeeping on the small backyard scale. Call us at 831-425-3514.
Our apiary services include beehive maintenance in the greater Santa Cruz area and catching wild honeybee swarms for removal to more suitable locations.
There’s nothing as vital and alive as a beehive! My favorite meditation is watching bees come in and out of an active hive. Years ago, we harvested three and one half gallons of the best wildflower honey in the world from our own hive.

This site contains apiary conservation information from THE HONEYBEE SANCTUARY at Spikenard Farm.
The work of The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees is also worth noting.
