Backyard Beehive provides a pathway to enjoy beekeeping without all of the stress of taking care of them yourself until you are ready or just leave it all to us.  As a Backyard Beehive customer, you get to share in the honey produced by the bees in your yard.

The options presented here are suggested arrangements for locations within our normal driving ranges.  Additional traveling fees apply outside of this range. If you don’t see an option that fits you, contact us for alternatives.

 

We also offer interesting arrangements for lodges, bed, and breakfasts, resorts, homeowners associations, etc.

Sponsor-a-Hive – $150 per year– You don’t get bees in your yard, but your participation helps supports our operation which gets bees in more neighborhoods and produces local honey. You get four quarts of honey as a sponsor as well as updates on bee activity during the bee season.

 

Lease – $720 per season for two hives (March-October) Additional hives are $275 per year. Fees include delivery and set up of the hive, monthly hive maintenance, honey removal, extraction, bottling and monthly report powered by Hivetracks.

Though you do not own the hives with this option, we welcome you to learn about the bees and help us take care of them much as you desire.  You might use this option as a stepping stone to owning and maintaining your own hive. You also receive a share of the honey produced, a case (24) of 16oz glass jars. Additional hives add 12lbs.
