I have 20 Top Bar hives in my orchard in Arroyo Seco, near Taos, NM, at 7,800ft. I call it a sanctuary for the bees, because I care for them and provide them with shelter from this changing environment. I treat the bees with respect and naturally (no chemicals) so that the products they make are clean. I leave them with lots of their own honey every winter.

I’m passionate about bees and the environment, and simple stuff. I grow my own organic food and want to put organic products on my skin too, that’s why I hand-craft this skin care line in small batches based on all the amazing products that the bees produce.
