Denver

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 beekeepers and the Urban Pollination Project in 2015, working together with nearly a dozen local businesses to sponsor educational beekeeping programs. Since then, we’ve continued to bolster both Denver beehives and Denver beekeepers across the region.

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. Urban beehives are now legal, pollinating the Platte River to the vibrant parks of the Civic Center.

Envisioning Denver
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 Denver’s bees. Our beekeepers closely observe beehive conditions throughout the season, and through DNA analysis of 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 Denver.
