For several years, PAm has supported the Bee Informed Partnership, a sort of ‘geek squad’ for beekeepers. They help in crises like pesticide kills, but they also routinely monitor bee health and help beekeepers optimize their management for successful and sustainable beekeeping all year. The beekeepers who have access to this service are very fortunate, and with your help BIP wants to offer this service to more beekeepers! You can help our pollinators by giving to their campaign.

Effective June 1st, 2015 Paramount Farming changed their name to Wonderful Orchards. Ownership and management remain the same, but the name change helps identify the company under The Wonderful Company umbrella and marketplace brands.
Project Apis m. recently submitted comments as part of the Listening Sessions to form the Federal strategy for pollinators. The comments were kept simple: 1) Varroa, 2) Nutrition and Forage, and 3) Pesticides. Pam’s focus was to emphasize that in policy setting, beekeepers should represent bees.
