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

From the Liberty Bell to Reading Terminal Market in Philly, we have urban beekeeping covered. With over 30 gardens spanning over 30 miles in Philadelphia, The City of Brotherly Love is the perfect home for bees. Our Philly beekeepers are putting beehives on the map, creating a greener future for the city. 

Philadeplhia is Bee Friendly

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

The city is supportive of urban beekeeping, passing a resolution in 2016 to raise awareness about bees and their importance to the environment. Home of the Declaration of Independence, Philly is also known for the creation of the popularized American hive structure, which makes this the perfect city for bees to thrive.

Envisioning Philadelphia
at its best for bees

As leading beekeepers, we do more than service beehives, we gather data that’s helping us to positively affect the health of Philadelphia’s bees. Our beekeepers closely observe beehive conditions throughout the season, and through DNA analysis of Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia.
