Backyard Beekeeping Made Easy
Interested in bees? We make it easy to learn, set up, and maintain your own beehives right in your backyard!
Includes a visit to choose the right beehive location, delivery and set up of hives, installation of bee colonies, and a monthly "live-hive" lesson for 4 months following installation. We also take care of any needs your new bees may have in the first 4 months, and we will help you register your hives with the State of Florida.
Includes all elements of plan #1, with an additional 2 months of "live-hive" lessons and your first honey extraction/bottling service...either we will bring the tools and walk you through it right in your kitchen or we can extract and bottle for you in our facility.
Plan #1 starts at $600 for 1 hive or $800 for 2 hives. Please contact us for a quote for more than 2 hives.
Plan #2 starts at $800 for 1 hive or $1000 for 2 hives. Please contact us for a quote for more than 2 hives.
Hive setup includes one deep hive box (painted white, but you may add a design if you'd like!) and frames with waxed foundation, lid and bottom board. Colonies consist of 5 frames of bees, drawn comb, brood in various stages of development, and a mated queen. Live-hive sessions will include feeding bees, pest control, and disease mitigation if necessary.
You will need to purchase a bee suit, hive tool, smoker, and make a hive stand for each of your hives (can be as simple as a couple cinder blocks). We are happy to make recommendations!
