Our Philosophy

A Future With Bees is a Missouri based operation promoting locally bred “survivor” honeybees, natural beekeeping and protecting a future that includes honeybees! We believe that breeding better bees is the best long-term solution to our bee's health and longevity. We practice chemical free, sustainable apiary management. We happily pick up swarms anywhere in the Springfield, MO region. We also perform bee rescues where we remove unwanted bee colonies from houses, trees, building structures, or anywhere else! If you have bees, we can help!
