Welcome to Bees Please Farms. Our goal is to help bring bees and chickens to those who want to enjoy fresh honey and eggs without committing to spending the time and money to do it all on their own. We also help educate people to support the native and honey bee populations of Victoria. We offer Hive Hosting where you get to keep bee hives on your land, but we do all of the work. In return, you get honey, pollination benefits, education, and the joy of watching bees at their work in your area. At Bees Please, we keep the travel of our bees to a minimum by hosting on a yearly basis, thus reducing their travel stress. Happy, healthy bees are our main focus. Honey bees are facing many challenges these days, including mites, diseases, and pesticides. The current mortality rate for honey bees in BC is around 30% each year. We strive to lower that number and share our knowledge with other beekeepers around the world.
We also offer Rent The Chicken, where we deliver coops, laying hens, Organic feed, food and water dishes, and instructions on how to care for your chickens. The chickens stay with you in their portable backyard coop for their laying period of May-October and then we pick them up and return them to our farm. If you decide you can’t bear to let them go there are also adoption packages available.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Bee happy. Bee healthy. Bee loved.
Note: Our next Farm Tour date is Sunday July 9th, from 1-4pm. Come and check out our chickens, bees, pollinator meadow, veggie patches, observation hive and more!
