Why Host a Beehive at your Business?
First, for the bees....... Pollinators are responsible for 35% of the food on your plate, and due to environmental and pest stressors, 50-25% of colonies each year perish. This is not a sustainable path, and we can help by increasing habitat and properly managing bee colonies.
Not only can your business demonstrate its sustainability commitment, but you will have custom labeled raw honey to share with whom ever you choose.
Help save the bees. Each rented beehive helps increase the bee population. Up to 40% of bee colonies die each year from Colony Collapse Disorder (CDC).
Produce Local Honey. Around 70% of the honey in the USA is imported. Raw Honey is also known for its health benefits and is low on the glycemic index.
Bees are responsible for pollinating 1 out of 3 bites on your dinner plate. Without them we loose some of our favorite foods.
We raise treatment free bees, and focus on local beekeeping and never ship our bees off for pollination services.
How it Works
We put a placement plan together that fits your needs as a steward, plus the needs of the bees. Once we have a plan in place, our beekeepers place the bees and equipment on your grounds or rooftop. We then manage the bees for months or years to come, and your business keeps the honey each season. Some of the other services we provide include:
Team Building in-hive events
Custom labeled honey jars
Habitat plans and execution
Praire restoration services
Custom Beekeeping Gear
When you host a beehive, it includes:
Beehives- new beehive equipment w/ local honey bees. You will receive 1 of 3 types of apis mellifera. Any additional hive equipment needed through the year is also included.
Our beekeepers do routine checks on the hives and reports on their behavior and health. They will put action plans together to help keep your beehive humming along.
We provide you with an expert beekeeper that will visit your beehive on scheduled visits to help keep care of your bees.
Raw Honey! One of the best parts of hosting a beehive, you get your own local honey. We guarantee (20) 12oz glass jars full of your hives honey*. Custom-labeled jars also available.
*In rare cases the hive will not produce enough to fulfill the honey with your honey. In those cases we will use our raw honey from other hives.
