Envisioning Boston
at its best for bees

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 Boston honey, 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.
