Our Story

Since 2015, the Heroes to Hives program has been leading the nation in training military veterans, National Guard members, Active Duty personnel, Reservists and their dependents in the art and science of beekeeping. Founded by Bee Wise Farms LLC's Adam Ingrao PhD (Entomologist), and Lacey Ingrao MA (Transpersonal Psychologist), and Michigan Food and Farming Systems’ Veterans in Agriculture Network, the program began as a way to engage Service Members in beekeeping as an opportunity for them to continue serving their nation by protecting our nation’s food security and work with other Service Members to recreate the support network of the military. To date, over 10,000 service members and their dependents have taken the Heroes to Hives course.
