Welcome to the hive of buzz-worthy activity at Old Church Honey Bee Farm! 🐝🌻 Step into our world where we're not just about honey; we're all about making a beeline for a brighter, bee-friendly future! 🍯✨

Established in March 2020, Old Church Honey Bee Farm was founded to safeguard honey bee populations. Our initiatives include providing K-12 educational programs to local school districts, ethically managing thriving honey bee colonies at our main apiary in Monroe Township, Middlesex County, NJ, and multiple remote sites, and offering essential pollination services to nearby farmers. We plan to introduce additional hives in surrounding areas as part of our expansion efforts.

The significance of bees in global food pollination cannot be overstated, with one-third of the food we consume dependent on their vital role. Regrettably, bee populations are in decline due to various factors such as widespread pesticide use, habitat destruction, drought, air pollution, and the impacts of climate change, many of which are exacerbated by human activity.

Recent statistics reveal a troubling trend: Professional beekeepers in the United States reported a 45% loss of managed honey bee colonies from April 2020 to April 2021. This decline is not confined to local regions but a worldwide crisis demanding urgent attention. All of us must contribute to bee conservation efforts.

To support this cause, we have committed to donating all proceeds from honey sales throughout the 2024 calendar year to The Bee Conservancy. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to bee protection, environmental preservation, and promoting food justice through community-driven education, research, habitat restoration, and advocacy.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further details on how you can join us in our efforts to save the bees.

Warm regards,

Jason Martin, Beekeeper
