Adopt A Hive

Have you ever wanted to do your part and help out honeybees?

You can now adopt a full honey bee colony and reep the benefits without the sting.  

What hive adoption is all about is financially providing the bees with housing, disease control, pest management and and seasonal upkeep at the Backed By Bees location.  

Your adoption will go directly to keeping your colony happy, healthy and thriving.  It will be put towards the purchasing of treatments for disease and pest management, the raising and evaluation of new young and vigorous queen bees, winter feed for the bees, upkeep of hive equipment and the constant labour poured into the colony throughout the year.

Upon adoption, we will mail you an unassembled hive box (no live bees included!) and allow you to paint the box and make it yours.  You return the box (in person or mail) and we will house a thriving honey bee colony in it!

What comes in the package:

    • Freedom to paint the hive body and make it yours
    • An engraved hive tool (most common beekeeping tool)
    • Email updates on how your hive is doing throughout the year
    • Honey from your hive
      • 6x1kg or 12x500g jars of honey from your adopted hive
    • A photo of you and your hive 
    • A invitation/tour to a private bee event during honey extraction season - you can help extract the honey from the adopted hives.

 Price is on a per month basis
