New York City is Bee Friendly

New York City is a great environment for bees! With surprisingly diverse flora, our New York City 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 NEW YORK CITY

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