Different ways you can
host beehives in your own yard
If you find interest in bees or feel a desire to
help them in the plight to survive or if you would
like to see better yields in your backyard gardens
perhaps hosting a hive is something for you to
consider. Hive hosting is becoming a popular way
for individuals to support natural food growing,
aide the future of the bees and learn along the
way. Hosting a hive is not dangerous or hazardous.
It merely means that you will provide a location for
one or more hives. Hosting agreements usually are
of a 12 month duration. We provide several options
in hive hosting which vary in the level of
participation that you choose. Our hive hosting
agreements range from providing only a location for
one or more hives and we will do the work (you
benefit from pollination) to the total opposite of
our coaching you through your first year managing a
hive yourself. (see also our Apprentice Program).
Hive hosting is available
in Redmond, Washington and surrounding areas.

This program is for the homeowner that wants to have honey bees to help in the pollination of their fruit, vegetable and flower gardens.
We supply a nice, sunny location, we supply the
hives, bees and care. For a small fee each
month you will be served with a jar of honey, from
your hives if available and the happiness of knowing
that you are part of a community of people who want
to ensure pollinators continue to live and thrive in
Similar to the hive hosting program this program adds the excitement of assisting in the management of the hives placed on your property.
You are welcome to suit up and get up-close and
personal with the bees. This is an excellent
way to experience bee keeping without committing to
owning your own hives. If over time you feel
that you would prefer to take over we have a
conversion program to transfer the ownership of the
hives to you.
