Greetings Fellow Beeks,
I've been a Beesource member for some time but rarely post. That said, this place has always been my go to for pithy bee information and insights, so I'm seeking your input and advice on an important project...
As an organic farmer raising vegetables, wasabi, mushrooms, berries, and a mixed orchard of fruit trees, I am fortunate to live in close touch with nature. After noticing fewer pollinators on our farm some years back, I began beekeeping.
After a couple of frustrating seasons, I decided there must be a better way to keep bees than in stacks of heavy boxes. I've been innovating a new beekeeping system and have spent the past four years refining, tweaking and bee-testing it
The core idea is folding beehives with universal comb frames. Patents are pending and we're making preparations for our first true production run. I've chosen INDIEGOGO as a launch platform for two reasons:
First is it is the single best platform to gather pre-orders so we can accrue enough orders to produce via CNC Router Manufacturing so we can control precision of joinery and sizing and fits
Second, it is a fabulous way to gather a tribe of like minded folks together who are willing to support, help Beta-Test, refine and exchange information about this new beekeeping approach with other beekeepers.
Before we go forward with a public launch I want to share this new system with fellow beekeepers and folks interested in beekeeping. I very much value and seek your experienced insights, suggestions and feedback that may inform further improvements. If it is not for you, please know I still value your input.
I'll stand ready to field questions or provide additional info...
