Bees have existed for millions of years, but now they need our help to survive. Rather urgently. Our flexible adoption plans for private clients enable you to support bees and their environment sustainably and directly. Adopt a full hive or just a part of it. Alone or collectively with friends and family.
Absolutely. They thrive on balconies, rooftops, and terraces. Honey bees will forage up to three kilometres making their immediate surroundings less critical in their diet than one might imagine. There's plenty to pollinate and feed on in the city and, above all, a wide range of choices on the menu. Even more than in the countryside, where agricultural monoculture severely limits variation and availability of suitable plants.
Bees are among the most peaceful (and fascinating) creatures to share your space with. They are single-mindedly focussed on pollination, and show no interest in us humans or our food. Left undisturbed, they are calm and not dangerous. They will only ever sting to defend their lives in the most extreme circumstances.
There really is no reason to hesitate about keeping bees in your garden or on the terrace. Starting the day watching your bees with a cup coffee in your hand, is a truly amazing and inspiring experience. Give it a go.
Adoption Plans for Private Clients
Your monthly subscription fee finances your adopted bees for a minimum of one year, or longer if you wish. Our adoption packages start at a tenth of a full hive, and can be extended to several hives. If you have adequate space, the hives can be installed on your premises. Otherwise, and for pro-rata plans, they remain on our site. We provide the full-service beekeeping operation needed to maintain the bees, ensure their health, and harvest the honey. The honey produced by the bees you sponsor is yours entirely. We fill and deliver it in unique and personalised glasses.
No matter which support you choose, your commitment helps bees and our environment.
Our private sponsorship packages start at 19,90 EUR incl. VAT / per month for a tenth of hive. A full sponsorship is 199.- EUR incl. VAT / per month. Subscription period is at least 12 months from the installation of the hive. A two-year commitment is recommended for optimal bee health. The subscription fee can also be paid annually in advance.
We happily provide you with an individual quote.
* This is for guidance only. Since these are living animals that act depending on the weather, we can only roughly estimate how many inspections will be necessary for their welfare. If the bees are hosted on your premises, you grant us access to the colonies as needed. At your convenience, of course.
