who’s the sacred bee?
The Sacred Bee is me, Kate Ferry, the author of this blog. I am a beekeeper in Custer, Washington. My family lives about 10 miles south of the Canadian border and right smack dab next to the Pacific Ocean, in beautiful Custer!
I am the wife of my husband, Jacob, and the mother to three children; my young daughters, Beckett and Camden, and our dog, Tucker, who is 11 years old.
Where's the name ‘Sacred Bee’ come from?
Honeybees are incredible insects. They are responsible for the pollination of over half of the food that makes it onto your table and the chief pollinators for many foods, including almonds and raspberries.
I became fascinated with honeybees while studying anthropology in college and learned more about these amazing creatures after taking an intense six-week course on beekeeping in Surrey, B.C., Canada.
My love and respect for the sacred bee has grown and intensified as I have watched my own two hives bear hundreds of pounds of honey, my garden flourish with the bees' pollination, and through the trials and tribulations of watching my girls (a.k.a. the honeybees) live and die.
Sacred Bee. Honoring the honeybee, one of nature’s gardeners, and practicing beekeeping in Whatcom County, Washington.
