Boston is Bee Friendly

Boston is a great environment for beekeepers! With surprisingly diverse flora, our Boston beehives produce more honey and live longer.

 

The city is very supportive of beekeeping.  Beekeeping is legal, and we have a vibrant urban farming community that wants more honeybees.

WE’RE LEARNING HOW TO IMPROVE BEE HEALTH IN BOSTON

As Boston’s leading beekeepers, we do more than service beehives, we gather data that’s helping us to positively affect the health of Boston’s bees. Our Boston beekeepers closely observe beehive conditions throughout the season, and through DNA analysis of honey from each beehive, give us valuable information on plant diversity, environmental conditions and pesticide exposure. Our analysis of local honey has shown us that urban environments include eight times more flowering plant species than suburban and rural areas, and that this is a key factor in bee health in Boston.
