Tim Colon and Tricia Sirakovsky, the people behind Island Bee Company, are partners to many island farmers, for their bees help make things grow. Founded in 1999, their small family-run apiary not only sells honey and bee-based products to the public but also can provide pollination services, locally raised queens, and full-service hive maintenance. They pride themselves on their honey being pure + raw as they maintain a chemical free apiary. Their honey products are labeled by the town where the honey was gathered, be it Chilmark, West Tisbury or Edgartown. And they even have a recycling program! At Cronig’s, there is a box in the back for empty jars or they can always be dropped off at the West Tisbury Farmer’s Market.
