What started as a backyard hobby quickly grew into a small business known as SLO Honey Co for owners and beekeepers Adrion and Summer Van Beurden. In our first year, we went from having two bee hives to having 25 hives as more and more people contacted us to remove unwanted honeybees. Currently, we manage 45+ hives.
Adrion, born and raised in Los Osos, CA has always loved building, designing, problem solving, and helping others, while Summer has always loved gardening and hands on projects. Beekeeping is a perfect blend of these attributes. Adrion’s construction and engineering backgrounds has only added to his talents as he is able to easily take on even the most challenging bee removal jobs. We feel good about saving bees and providing a service for people in our community. Upon removing unwanted bees, we bring them back to our apiary and give them a home. In return the bees make honey for us and we can feel good about helping the environment and the people of San Luis Obispo County in providing this valuable service.
We are happy to offer bee removal services, pollination, and local honey to the Central Coast, California.
We have provided services to clients in Nipomo, Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, Morro Bay, Cambria, San Simeon, Santa Margarita, Atascadero, Templeton, Paso Robles, San Miguel, Creston, Lockwood, and California Valley.
Some of our LARGE jobs have included Hearst Castle in San Simeon (bee removal), Enza Zaden USA, Inc. (pollination), Trees of Antiquity (pollination), Black Sheep Bar and Grill (bee removal), and a Paso Robles Ranch that had 10 Africanized bee hives!
Hives in our apiary are meticulously maintained using chemical free beekeeping methods. Every drop of our honey is raw, unprocessed, unheated, unfiltered, and comes straight out of the honeycomb. Our bees produce every drop of honey we sell!
We especially love providing pollination services to local farmers on the Central Coast. There is something very rewarding about seeing your own bees, hard at work, buzzing from flower to flower helping to produce food. We pride ourselves on providing clients with good strong healthy hives that are carefully maintained from inside out. We don’t hesitate to make multiple trips to a site to “check on our hives” to make sure our bees have water and adequate room in their hive for quick build up of honey and pollen. We are honored and more than happy to provide this valuable service to our local community. No pollination job is too small for us!
