The Bee Ranchers are now on Instagram!


And we are not the only ones. Come visit us on Instagram and definitely “follow us”. We’ve hooked up and started following some very cool folks with like minded views on the importance of honeybees as well as the beauty of the honeybees’ natural world.

Fear not! We’ll still deliver some great “BEETOGRAPHY” on the blog from time to time but Instagram will be a visual resource for you all to check out what the Bee Ranchers are up to on a daily/weekly basis! Mike, Ranch Foreman, has been very busy lately rescuing swarms and prepping hives for delivery of bees to clients this season and never misses an opportunity to snap a pic or two in the process. Serving as Brand Foreman, I’m always keeping my eyes open for all things bee-related and bee-supportive.

So come on all you INSTAHEADS, start following The Bee Ranchers. Below are just a few folks we’ve hooked up with on Instagram, are now following and find to be very interesting:

IG_gretchen_brIG_jake_tbkIG_muxiaIG_smattoonWell I’m quite aware there may be some of you that have no idea what the heck Instagram is! It is a free APP that enables users to share images and messages with the network of followers they create/obtain. We at The Bee Ranchers find it to be just the right Social Media platform to further engage with our community and beyond. BEWARE: IT CAN BE ADDICTIVE!!!

Bees “Across the Pond”

The Honey Club is a great organization located in the UK.

When first getting involved with The Bee Ranchers I did a lot of research on other companies and organizations that were similarly looking to help the honeybee population. Of course I started really looking locally/regionally. In doing so, it was not too difficult to stumble upon other organizations outside our region, across the United States and even within other countries and different continents.

One in particular that caught my eye was The Honey Club. An organization that summarizes it’s agenda as follows:

The Honey Club is a social enterprise that aims to create the biggest bee-friendly network in the world, starting with our local community in Kings Cross, London. Our mission is to save bees, learn more and give back.

We like the sound of that and based upon their blog, looks like they are up to some interesting things over there – plus they are based out of a kick-arse design firm Wolff Olins. Give them 5 minutes of your time and learn how they are making a sincere effort to better support honeybees “across the pond”.

We’ll be sending them a hello and thanks for their efforts which in turn, will hopefully show them that their message and network is growing globally!
