Best Bees™ is truly unique. We are the only organization that brings the amazing experience of owning a honey bee hive right to your yard and manages the bees for you. Best Bees™ presents a unique opportunity to anyone interested in these important little creatures, either for their role as pollinators of over 130 crops, or because their population numbers are on the decline. Our management service provides Ph.D.-level expertise on how to reduce disease in honey bees, and also years of experience in practical beekeeping.
Honey bees improve garden productivity by increasing garden crop harvest quantity and quality. They also produce unique products in their honey and beeswax. See our “Bees” page to learn more about these vitally important creatures.
Best Bees Company™ is based in the South End of Boston, MA. As such, we specialize in installing honey bee hives in densely populated, urban areas. We also offer our services to the Greater Boston area and Cape Cod. Our typical service involves delivery and installation of one or more honey bee hives to your property in early May, followed by an experienced, local beekeeper visiting your hive(s) about every two weeks for routine checks. We do not use any chemicals and so may be considered as an organic beekeeping service. To minimize concern over the more bothersome traits of honey bees (ouch!), we offer a free personalized consultation to each gardener.
Best Bees Company™ ranked second place in the 2010 MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition’s Elevator Pitch contest out of 306 competing companies.
