Honey Bees


Collaboration can be defined as the act of individuals or groups working together to achieve a common goal. Collaboration has many benefits, including the sharing of knowledge, and skills, increased creativity, and the ability to tackle complex problems that may have otherwise been beyond the capacity of an individual, or company. Collaboration is the primary driver of innovation and progress in many fields.

We firmly believe that harnessing the problem-solving power of collaborative effort will be a key lever for the long-term sustainability of our industry. 

We are both proud and humbled to work closely with the following like-minded people and companies to bring meaningful progress and innovation to the space of honeybee supplemental feeding and nutrition.  


Ian Steppler

Ian Steppler, who is married to Sandy and has five children, has dedicated his life to beekeeping since buying his first four hives 23 years ago. We cannot overemphasize our appreciation for Ian's unwavering dedication to the cause of apiculture. He has been a rare breed of collaborator for Apis Biologix, supporting our work through ongoing field trials and his platform. We are truly grateful for his continued support and efforts.
