Welcome to Peace Bees, the web home of The Bee Girl, Alex Lesniak who is also the 2007 Indiana Young Beekeeper of the Year and the 2011 Indiana Honey Princess. Our goal is to the supply the best product possible while bringing honey bees and people together in peace. Through our educational programs and Second Chance programs we teach sustainable beekeeping methods and environmental stewardship. The peaceful honey bee has so much to offer that we are expanding to bring their calming, therapeutic, nature to the community and those facing workplace challenges like PTSD or inadequate job and social skills. We believe that everybody deserves a second chance. To learn more about your Second Chance program please watch our promotional video HERE
Most people do not realize that the honey bee is a peaceful creature. All they want to do is collect nectar and pollen and will only sting if provoked.
One third, or more, of our food supply depends on the honey bee. These wonderful creatures are vital to a healthy and diverse food supply. So think twice about swatting at the errant bee that flies your way, and show a little love for the peaceful honey bee.
