    My son is in Spokane WA AF Base at Fairchild I will be visiting him thus Christmas and wanted to bring him some honey from our local growers here in Savannah GA but no one seems to respond to my calls so I decided to seek a location in his home state! I would like to know if you could ship to his address in Spokane I would be interested in the Buckwheat honey the pint size possibly two please advise if this is possible thank you! Amy Bowden

      Hi Amy. Yes, I can ship 2 1-pound jars of Buckwheat honey to your son. I’ll email you directly with details (but if you don’t get that email, email me: Bean@PacificNorthwestHoney.com – the internet void sometimes captures things). It’s a shame, no GA beekeepers are calling you back.

    My wife and I are looking for as local as possible (which we were advised to do) raw honey for a healthier diet and for medicimal purposes combined with cinamon. Do you have that honey and or can you recomend someone. We live in Federal Way WA. You are welcome to email or you can call at 253-230-2678.

    Hi. My name is Gunnar, and i just moved to a farm where we have cow, sheep, and soon chickens. I LOVE bees (bumblebees, honeybees… etc) and i thought that a great addition would be a small honey bee hive. A school is having a summer beekeeping program during the summer and i wanted to know what i might need to start my own beehive. i do a lot of gardening and have plenty of flowers and plants, as well as a large pond and plenty of space for them to roam around. I have a place i can put a bee box, but i need to know whether or not you need a license to bee-keep for yourself and your family. Thanks!

    I am genuinely grateful to the owner of this web page who
    has shared this fantastic paragraph at here.

    Hello everyone, it’s my first pay a quick visit at this site, and post is genuinely fruitful for me, keep up posting these content.

    • Bean says:

      Thank you – I’m glad that find the blog useful – but remember, this is just my way of keeping bees. Beekeeping is local and personal.

  7. Kerri Ann says:

    Hi! I’m curious how I could get my father a gift of a home bees hive? He lives in Port Angeles, WA on a good amount of land, he’s always wanted to get bees for pollinating the orchard and garden! Any idea’s where to get a good starter hive?

    • Bean says:

      Hi Kerri – Unless your father has expressed a deep (and I mean deep and committed) interest in honeybees, DO NOT BUY HONEYBEES. Don’t get me wrong. I think home hives are great, but no one should get honeybees or a hive without first joining their local bee group, talking to local beekeepers there and seeing hives. My suggestions: 1) Get him a membership in the local club East Jefferson Beekeepers Association http://ejbees.org/ and write out a nice homemade “gift certificate” – in case he decides that he really wants to partake in the challenges of beekeeping. 2) If you really want to buy some bees, buy a mason bee box (native bee) and some mason bees – except one buys the latter in December… But you could give him a gift certificate… Again, beekeeping is fun, but very challenging. Hope that helps.

    Looks like you have some fantastic products here. Just wondering if you could clarify what the difference between regular honey and ‘raw’ honey is? Is it just the amount of treatment and additives? Thanks,

    -Brad

    • Bean says:

      “Regular” honey is processed. It is filtered, removing the pollen, propolis, and bits of bees wax. The pollen and propolis are good for you. It is also heated over 120F – the moment honey goes over 120F all the goodness in it is gone: proteins, amino acids, enzymes – all are destroyed. Best to keep honey no warmer than 100F if you want all that good stuff. In short raw honey is unheated, unfiltered honey. “Regular” honey is heated and filtered. The issues of treatment remain with both. Many raw honey vendors have hives in which they use hard chemicals and antibiotics in the hives. If these are used in the hives, they are in the honey. We run naturally treated (I use essential oils 2X a year), antibiotic-free hives. In my humble opinion, one should always seek out raw honey from naturally treated (or no-treatment), antibiotic-free hives. Hope that helps.

      • Shannon says:

        I saw local raw honey advertising that it was filtered at 200 microns. Is that too much filtering, in your opinion?

        • Bean says:

          That seems really small – like they’re filtering out a lot, if I’m reading this right. A micron is one millionth of a meter, which would be really really tiny openings, even at 200 microns it would be really tiny. So I would think that system is getting a bit over the top. I don’t filter at all, but some folks I know use wide mesh. I figure folks would rather chew a little beeswax and have all the good stuff.

    Hello,
    I just had some Raspberry Wildflower raw honey that I purchased at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market. Delicious!
    Edmonton, Alberta

    • Bean says:

      I’m glad you like it – I think it’s fabulous. That’s from the hives of Ron and LaVonne Babcock, Beekeepers (yep that’s the company name), in Arlington. He’s a wonderful beekeeper and had helped educate many of the successful beekeepers in WA Puget Sound area.

  10. Joseph says:

    Hello I live in spokane wa and would like to know where I can buy new pollen? I hear its really healthy to eat

    • Bean says:

      I don’t know. I get asked alot about where people can find bee pollen, but I know no one who’s collecting it. In my humble opinion, you can get a lot of that goodness out of eating raw honey (unfiltered, unheated). The pollen in the raw honey has is no longer in it’s silica shell (as it is on the flower), and is easier to digest than collected pollen. But if you find someone who is collecting and selling pollen in your area, please let me know.

    Hello
    I live in spokane wa and we found not sure what you would call it but a bunch of honey bees seem
    To have made a home in a rock pile by our house. We are looking to have someone come remove and take them your website popped up on google…do you have any ideas for us?

  12. mobile games says:

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this. Additionally, the
    blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!

    • Bean says:

      Thank you. I must say that although I kind of put it together, I have my favorite Web Designer go over it once a year : she can be found at http://nwdigitaldesign.com/ (Northwest Digital Design) She’s brilliant, creative, and patient with those of us who are really not technically well versed.

    Do you have a facebook site? Also , do you have fire bush honey or know of anyone that does?

    • Bean says:

      Yes facebook is Brookfield Farm Bees And Honey (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Brookfield-Farm-Bees-Honey/355478946526?ref=ts is what is at the top – the internet confuses me). I bet you’re talking about what we call fireweed here. There is lots of fireweed in my honey, but it’s not pure fireweed. No one I know has said “hey I got fireweed this year” – it’s a hard one to find pure stands of, and hard to get the bees to work in WA for some reason. Try the Honey Board’s honey locator – in Alaska they have fireweed.
