Out of concern for our clients, families and staff, we will be closing all non-essential services until the beginning of April, at which time we will review the latest government recommendations.
We will continue to maintain all current hives and ask that you respect the social distance guidance as per government guidelines when staff are working the hives.
Additionally, please be advised that we cannot accept any further Adopt A Hive applications as we are unsure of the reliability of the supply chain when sourcing new queens and nuc colonies from our supplier. We hope to be able to provide more information in a week or two.
As the fall of 2017 marches on, so does the dwindling supply of available honeybee hives for rent.
Consider having your own backyard bee hive and its harvest of pure raw honey for your family to enjoy, but without the costly overhead and investment of owning and maintaining a hive. Our program allows you to do exactly that. We will bring a fully maintained honeybee hive into approved yards, and then maintain the hive for you all summer!
Your commitment? Agree to host the hive for the season, accept the terms of rent and that's about it. You can be as involved or as hands off as you desire. The best part is that you get to help mother nature protect our honeybees and in the fall of 2017, you will get between 10 and 25 percent of the honey produced in the hive for your family's enjoyment.
