Indigo Acres Apiary

Posted on

Today I step away from focusing on books to present the brand new website for my sister’s beekeeping business. Many of you remember Roda from her blogging days throughout the last couple of years. While she’s still very active on social media, her spare time (yeah, right!) has been focused on building an amazing new section on her farm, Indigo Acres, to launch an apiary – a home for bees! I’ve even seen the bee suits!!!

Isn’t it a beautiful logo?

I had the privilege of visiting Roda last fall when she only had two hives in production… now there are too many to count! She’s always painting new ones and preparing the landscape for their arrival. What an awesome place Indigo Acres was, and that was in the fall-turning-winter season when everything was starting to go into hibernation mode. Now, it’s quickly coming out for spring and showing all the brilliance of Roda’s hard working and planning. Check out the site for amazing pictures and videos.

Congratulations to Indigo Acres Apiary on their launch week! If you are interested in purchasing honey or other products, participating in small group hive experiences, or planning a custom package to understand more about saving the bees, creating pollinator gardens, or learning more about caring for these buzzing little creatures, you should definitely check out the site. There are links to all the social media sources so you can connect on various platforms. Start with the site here Indigo Acres Apiary and have your very own magical experience!

      I wouldn’t mind the birthday suit. *crackles like the witch* ah well it was just a thought.
      Roda, congratulations on your venture. This is simply awesome. And I loved, loved, loved the logo.

    This looks wonderful, and it’s in Michigan, where I grew up and lived for most of my adulthood. In fact, I lived in both Mount Pleasant and Big Rapids, which aren’t all that far from Rockford. If I was still in Michigan, maybe I’d stop in to see the apiary in person. The photos look amazing!

      Glad to hear it! If you’re ever back there! 🙂 She did a wonderful job. I’ve only been there once, but the state looks great.

        It’s a beautiful state. I grew up right near Lake Huron and most recently lived in the Upper Peninsula, near Lake Superior. I miss the lakes every day.

    I read this with great interest. Everything about the post was cool, especially the logo etc. The beekeepers I know locally have web pages, but nothing as cool as what you showed here in your post. I enjoyed this post a lot.

    Wow, her home looks lovely! Not sure I could ever wear one of those suits with my claustrophobia, but I appreciate everyone who works to protect our bees ❤

    How awesome! And what a lovely logo. I love bees, and would love an apiary. My family is against this idea….

      They are scary, but Roda can walk them thru it! She almost has me convinced to try the bee suit.

      BTW, I am picking up the first book in your series to read the last week of April.

        Heehee. You’ll be safe in the bee suit.

        … 😑 I’m rewriting it, based on feedback from non family/friends. It needs a lot of work.

        Did you want me to hold off a bit? Or read it and provide feedback now? I’m okay either way, just want to be sure to read something you’ve written (when you are ready)

    I shall go and vist her blog. I love bees, though our relationship only consists of me providing lots of flowers in the garden and enjoying hearing them buzzing around. My Macro photographer friends take some brilliant photographs, close up they look so lovely and furry. Looking after bees is so important.

      I agree with you, but they are scary! I hope someday to overcome that fear.
