Welcome to Babcock Farms

This page is to bring awareness to sustainability in beekeeping. To be sustainable you need to look at all aspects including but not limited to education, knowledge, fiscal responsibility and understanding the difference between what is required vs desired.

Education – what gives you the foundation to build upon.

Knowledge – the ability to into a hive an have a good understanding of what is going on.

Fiscal Responsibility – at three to five years you should be turning a profit. I produce proven quality queens, honey, sell nucs, and teach beekeeping.

Required vs Desired – Required is pest management, disease treatment, swarm prevention and maintaining strong healthy colonies. Desired is acquiring desired genetics to introduce to you apiary, keeping up on practices that can help you become a better beekeeper.
