Valley View Farm

ADOPT-A-HIVE PROGRAM

At Valley View Farm we are dedicated to help save honeybee populations and educate the public about colony collapse. We invite you to join us in working toward a solution by ‘adopting’ a hive for a year in support of pollinator education in the Northern Piedmont of Virginia. With your help, we can continue to reach compassionate and caring people who are effectuating change to benefit pollinators!

Not a beekeeper, don’t have land space, or don’t have the time to learn but still want to help the declining pollinator populations? This is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved! Each ‘adopted’ hive will be kept in Valley View Farm’s apiary and comes with some sweet perks for the ‘adopter.’

Valley View Farm will care for your hive. Our apiary is located in a sustainable area of Valley View Farm that is preserved in perpetuity under conservation easement.
