Urban apiaries have become sought-after and desirable amenities that contribute to tenant retention and engagement. By offering healthier, greener spaces, building owners and managers contribute directly to the health and well-being of tenants, as well as substantially improving their satisfaction and the value they place on the building. The installation of a hive in an urban environment requires minimal resources while bringing a flood of direct and indirect benefits, notably increased social and ecological welfare.

At the beginning of the season, we’ll bring our most docile honey bees to your premises, a special Italian breed selected for their pleasant behavior. Our professional beekeeping team is trained to find the best and safest location for your bees - a well-planned project will have no adverse impact on the chosen space.
We will visit your hives every three weeks during the beekeeping season for regular checks and maintenance. Your educational workshop schedule will be determined in advance according to your preferences and participant availability. These workshops are hour-long immersive conferences or interactive activities that aim to create a bridge between your tenants and the beekeeping project.
At the end of the season, our beekeepers will harvest your honey frames and take them back to our honey house for extraction. We’ll then bottle your honey in the jar size of your choice and work with you to design your customized honey label.
