Knox Cellars Mason Bees


Jim Ullrich, of Bremerton, Washington, and his wife, Suzanne, took over Knox Cellars in 2017 on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula. Passionate about nature and backyard habits, they’re excited to continue bringing bees to the backyards of America. The Ullrichs’ goal is to share awareness of the amazing orchard mason bee. Pollinating bees are declining rapidly, and they are eager to help reverse the trend.

Jim will be speaking at the Oregon Fairs
