- Don't use pesticides or insecticides 

- Use peat-free compost to save wildlife habitat

- Create a bee hotel.


Our bees are not only important to us at Courtney's because they produce our incredible honey we use to infuse Grumblebee Rum, they also pollinate all of the apple trees in our orchard where we make our Cider and Juice!
