JOIN THE DENVER BEEKEEPING MOVEMENT

The Best Bees Company is a full-service beekeeping operation. We install and manage beehives for residences and businesses in Denver and select markets nationwide.

 

We joined forces with Denver urban beekeeper, Seneca Kristjonsdottir and her Urban Pollination Project in 2015, working together nearly a dozen local businesses to sponsor educational beekeeping programs in Denver Urban Gardens and at the University of Denver. Sponsor companies included Teakoe, Madhava, Highland Tap & Burger, TAG, Larkburger, Backcountry Deli, BeauJo’s, and Woody Creek. That same year, we worked closely with Union Station to establish and install four rooftop beehives on top of the historic train station.

Denver is Bee Friendly

Denver is a great environment for bees! With surprisingly diverse flora, our Denver 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 DENVER

As leading beekeepers, we do more than service beehives, we gather data that’s helping us to positively affect the health of Denver’s bees. Our 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 Denver.
