About Crown Bees

Our Vision for a Healthy World

Gardeners and farmers grow more food when raising the right bee on the right crop - it’s that simple. Over the past thirty years, research and field trials have proven the positive relationship between bee diversity and crop yield. Crown Bees raises, sells, and advocates for solitary hole-nesting bees that pollinate significantly better than the honey bee.

Our History

Crown Bees retail website was launched in 2009 and by 2010 we had products in nurseries throughout the Northwest. We're proud to have expanded our garden and hardware store wholesales nationally, become advisers to academia, spoken at the United Nations about food security, and partnered with multiple nonprofits.
