Help us rebuild to save the Bees

Pope Canyon Queens is a young women owned company that has been breeding queens for a better tomorrow. Ive been working for 7 years to get where I was. I moved here and left everything behind to reach that goal, and been working on selecting better genes to help to save the bees for feeding the nation. The Hennessy fire destroyed EVERYTHING we owned. Shop, house, bees and hopes. We are planning to rebuild our project from scratch but need your help! The insurance will help cover the buildings and materials but will not help the bees we lost as they are livestock. We are not the only one suffering from that disaster and will do everything to help the community, but we need help with the bees that burned to be able to keep breeding them and bring back our livestock for next year pollination and to keep feeding the states. We do need you to help us helping the country. Our loss in hives is beyond 100, 000$ and will find different ways to get there....We thank you for any contributions you may donate. To facilitate here is what we are also in need of : 8 framers deep super/box 8 framers lids 1gl feeders Frames/Foundation 4 ways Pallet Pollen patties mixer JzBz grafting bar JzBz grafting frames Drivert bags Nucs for queen breeding (4 ways) or any type Shallows/medium supers Sugar syrup totes (250 gallons) Queens excluders Cloke boards Incubator Small extractor Bulkbees cages Shaker boxes Bottling tank We are not expecting only donation, we have a budget to buy gently used material/beekeeping gears, with the depreciation of the insurance, we can't afford to buy everything brand new.
