Here’s How It Works:
As a member of the Host-A-Hive program, you provide a home for 1-2 of our honeybee hives. Our team manages the hive year-round while you get to sit back and enjoy the impact you’re making in bringing pollinators to your area and enjoy the delicious honey they produce right in your backyard!
Schedule an initial visit to walk the property and find the best location for the hives on your property.
Choose an installation date. This will be the time we bring the Honeybee Hive(s) and install onto your property.
Sit back and watch the bees work away in your backyard. Maintenance checks will continue monthly as needed which you are always welcome to join and learn!
By joining our program you are able to enjoy a variety of benefits while at the same time contributing back to our environment and supporting a local small business. Our team prides itself on offering exceptional service and relationship with our program participants.
The host is always welcome to join in during the inspections. This allows us to show you the inner workings of a beehive and for our host to learn by getting “Hands-On” instruction.
Support the Urban Honeybee Population
When you sign up to host a hive, you are bringing anywhere from 20,000 - 120,000 new neighbors to your neighborhood! This supports the honeybee population in your area and increases pollination in a 3 mile radius.
All of the honey that is produced is split 50/50, the host keeping half and Buddha Bee keeping half. This is a great way to taste and share honey right from your backyard, it doesn’t get anymore local than that. You can even create your own label!
You can choose the number of hives you would like to host on your property! Below is a breakdown of the cost structure depending on the number of hives you would like to install. We also offer this option to groups, for instance, we have neighborhoods who all pitch in together to host a hive!
