Knox Cellars Native Pollinators - Help Save The Bees!

Font Size

beesToday's showcase are Knox Cellars. This is one of a very few businesses left that help to save our bee populations. They provide "plug-and-play" kits with live bees and very small and handy "bee homes." Their kits are supplied to orchards and any customers/clients who are interested to see their fruits, vegetables to be pollinated by Bee-Friends. 

"We have been selling Orchard Mason bees (called Blue Orchard Bees by our east coast customers) and other North American native bees and supplies since 1990. My father, Brian Griffin, started this business out of his workshop in Bellingham WA as a retirement hobby. It got out of control and I joined in the effort in 1992. Over the years most of the members of our extended family have lent a hand and thus this is truly a family endeavor.

As of November, 2004, Brian has decided to try retirement again, this time without the bee business. He will still be around when it fits his creative mood. You may see him at the NW Flower and Garden Show in Seattle or at occasional educational talks, but other than that the torch has been passed on me.

Knox Cellars started this industry with our wonderful book, The Orchard Mason Bee, by Brian Griffin. From this little book, an industry was launched and we now sell bees, books, habitat, and various accessories all across the country. Our products are available at specialty nurseries or through this web site.

Chalet_Closed_Door_300Check out our online sales section for a full description of all our products. We ship bees from November until spring and ship all the rest of our products year around. If you are just getting your feet wet in Native Bees, read thru our on-line catalog and then scan our back copies of The Urban Farmer. It is the newsletter that we send yearly to all our customers. It contains all sorts of great information on raising native bees as well as little tidbits of learning that we discover over the years. I am also adding a new Frequently Asked Questions section which you can refer to for common problems. This should be on line soon. If this doesn't answer your question, e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I'll get back to you asap. Be aware however that during the busy season I get many more e-mails than I can return each day. I do keep plugging away at them and will do my best to get back to you in a reasonable amount of time."
