Join Spears Bee Farm At:

Sitting under the tree canopy at Forest Lake Camp in the summer of 2022, a few of us developed the idea of a homesteading group with a family friendly environment to interact with like-minded people who are interested in homesteading's self-sufficient lifestyle, with a willingness to learn from and support one another.  And as it developed, it was apparent that we needed to facilitate a gathering to share the aspects and diverse skills of homesteading.  

 See link to Homesteaders of Iowa FB page below.

Here at Spears Bee Farm, we decided to have a sale on most of our products for people who are attending HOI Expo 2023.  You can order supplies now and pick them up at the Expo.  This saves you shipping charges as well as saving you 5-8% on your cost.  Our idea is that you should save shipping charges and take in a great event, all in one.

We have supplied our inventory with beekeeping supplies.  As long as the inventory lasts, we will offer our discounted price on purchases of $150 or more.  

Beginning at 8% discount the week of March 6-12, followed with 7% discount the week of March 13-19, with 6% discount for the week of March 20-26*, and the final week of the sale, March 27 - April 1, will be at 5% discount (including at the Expo).

To make it easier, click on the week you will be ordering (below), and your discount code will be automatically entered. Or enter the corresponding code at check-out.  There will only be one discount available each week.  The link will take you to the homepage to begin your shopping.  Your discount code will be automatically entered for you at check-out.  You will see it below the discount entry window.

March 27 - April 1 Discount Code: 5%Expo2023

Use Pickup Option to get at the Expo (Order boxes unassembled*),
Choose Ship to have it shipped to your door (assembled or unassembled).

*Please remember that assembled hive boxes require extra time.  Randy has put together some extra boxes for the Expo, but when they run out, we will have boxes that you can assemble and paint yourself.  

Please make your order of $150 or more by April 1st to participate in the sale. 

Choose the pick-up option at check-out if you will be picking-up at the Expo. 

If you are unable to attend the Expo, you can still help support the Expo by purchasing through this sale and having it shipped to you.  Choose the shipping option at checkout.

Don't miss out on this pre-Expo savings opportunity!  Save twice - outright on cost and then save on no shipping costs by picking up your order at the Expo.
