Our mission is simple,
raise healthy honeybees,
grow mindful beekeepers

Aloha, I’m Katie. I’ve been keeping bees for over a decade now, & my love for these magical creatures just keeps growing.

Over the years I’ve developed best practices for raising healthy honeybees, and along the way, I discovered I have a gift for growing beekeepers! Sharing my gifts and passion is my kuleana, it’s the heart of HĀNAI HIVES.

Together we can Raise healthy bees and give back to the 'Āina that feeds and nurtures us every day.

1. Where to begin?

Contact us! We’d love to answer any questions you have. If you decide a HĀNAI HIVE seems right for you, we’ll schedule a time to meet up to plan next steps

2. What to expect?

If you’d like you to HĀNAI a hive on your property, we’ll meet at your location to assess the space. If it’s a good fit for you and the bees, we’ll make a plan for placement and schedule a moving day!

If you prefer to HĀNAI a Hive at one of our apiaries, we’ll meet there.

3. Moving Day!

If you HĀNAI a hive at your property, we’ll come just after dusk when all the bees are in their box and set up your hive.   

If you HĀNAI a Hive at one of our apiaries, your bees will be waiting for you!

And… the journey begins!
