::: It’s a special year indeed! ZQB has evolved over the years and we’ve taken different approaches and roles but some things have stayed the same. Such as our commitment to a  longevity-based breeding program and conscientious rearing protocol. We’ve branched out and have collaborators in various regions. As a community, we strive to share quality stock that is adaptable and enduring.

Mark is holding down the home farm on The High Road to Taos in the southern Rocky Mountains while Mel is on assignment as a Fulbright-NatGeo Fellow in Spain through the summer. Mark is now taking orders for 2020 bees.

He can be reached at 505.929.8080 (texting reaches him faster than voice as reception on the mountain can be spotty). He can also be reached at longevibees@gmail.com.

And as always, you can reach Mel at ziaqueenbees@hotmail.com and she can forward info to Mark.

We’re planning some fall time celebrations for the 15 year anniversary! Stay tuned!
