The Busby Hive is a sustainable off the grid homesteading micro-farm that provides farm fresh goods and inspirational online content to motivate others to lead adventurous lifestyles by their own design.
We nourish our local community with sustainable, delicious fare; we empower clients to expand the boundary of their perceived lifestyle limitations; and we coach entrepreneurs in their purposeful business ventures.
The Busby Hive is rooted on a foundation of practicing what we teach—making it a priority to thrive through healthy lifestyle and simple abundance, experiencing cultures around the world, and creating sustainable, life-fulfilling businesses focused on success from a place of service.
Founders, Mollie & Sean Busby are TV personalities, world-travelers, entrepreneurs, and sustainable living experts located in Northwest Montana.
Check out their international nonprofit organization, Riding On Insulin (ROI). After Sean’s diagnosis with a chronic autoimmune disease in 2004 called T1D, Sean founded ROI to show kids with T1D how to ski and ride despite living with their disease. While Sean is still intimately involved in the brand’s camps and coaches team, Mollie serves as the Executive Director and employs a team of four around North America, with the mission of empowering, activating and connecting the global type 1 diabetes community through shared experience and action sports — primarily skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking camps for kids & teens. ROI serves thousands of individuals affected by T1D annually in the USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia!
In 2015, Mollie founded Yoga Hive, a chain of yoga studios in Northwest Montana with the mission to nourish minds, strengthen bodies, and deepen souls through guided yoga, silks yoga, stand-up paddleboard yoga, and meditation. Mollie also maintains her personal business and life coaching brand at MollieBusby.com.
