OrganicNation.tv visits Melanie Kirby, co-owner of Zia Queenbee Co, at her home in the mountains of Truchas, NM.
Melanie breeds Survivor Queenbees that are sold to beekeepers around the country so they can build healthy hives. Her approach ensures that the bees are genetically diverse and by giving their queen bees extra time to mature, they prove themselves to be naturally resilient against disease, pests and weather fluctuations.
