Hive Hosting

We make Beekeeping a Possibility

Through our hive hosting programs, we take care of all aspects of hive delivery, set-up, maintenance, and honey extraction for our clients through our popular hosting programs.

Our clients include countryside weekenders, backyard gardeners, city dwellers, small-scale organic farmers, and pretty much anyone who cares about the plight of the bees.

The Heritage Bee

Support the Bees

Bees play a critical role in our ecosystem, but are facing the threat of disappearing due to modern agricultural practices, lack of habitat and increasing stressors.

The bees habitat is degrading. Industrial insecticides get into the bees’ nectar and pollen and air pollution limits the bees’ ability to find flowering plants.

Over one third of the world’s crop production is pollinated by bees. With the disappearance of bees we face increased food prices and potential global shortages.

Heritage Bee Co. carefully selects locations that are idyllic for the bees. We encourage our hosts to plant pollinator gardens and provide a water source for the bees. Properties must be free of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Our natural, organic approach means working in synchronicity with nature. We believe our sustainable approach is best for bee health over long term.
