Hire (or Adopt) Your Hives
CBC will set up a honey bee colony on your rooftop, lot, or other suitable location. Then we will manage your hive on an annual contract. All you have to do is sit back, watch and enjoy the satisfaction and props for helping the honey bees.
Show Your Hives Off to the World
Hosting a beehive is a great way to enhanced brand recognition and reputation. Imagine your enterprise logo on your hives set up so that your clients know you care about the environment and the future of the honey bee. You will also be able to share impactful eco-stories for your social media campaigns.
> Each beehive is a data point that contributes to our affiliated 501(c)3 nonprofit research efforts.
Our standard package includes all required hive equipment delivered to your (or your client’s) site. We supply and install the honey bee colony and provide them with any support they may require to thrive until our next visit.
Our beekeepers will visit on a routine basis. We visit the bees in response to their needs. How often we visit the bees depends on hive condition, time of year, and other factors. You will be notified ahead of time, the day in which to expect your beekeeper.
Routine updates will be sent to you (or your client) after each visit, regarding the status of the hive, the strength of the colony, and any disease or issue that we may have found.
Honey harvesting can be done in a few different ways. You have the option of harvesting your own frames, in which case the beekeeper will remove the frames from the hive and leave them in a safe place for you to extract. If you would rather have us process the honey for you, there is a modest processing fee.
