Rent a bee hive in  Auckland

Hamilton / Wellington / Christchurch and more….

Want to own a beehive but don’t have time?
Or know how to keep bees, or let’s say simply not confident enough to look after a bee colony?
Then you have come to the right place.

We provide fully serviced beehive rentals around the country through our network of experienced and qualified beekeepers. Our beekeepers focus on getting bees into towns, cities, businesses, parks and on rooftops. 
Bees in the garden and backyards help pollinate fruit trees but also keeping the local environment healthy, as bees forage 3 to 5 kilometers radius from the hive.
Our aim is to increase urban bee population, educate our younger generation on the significance of honey bees and how to live sustainably and off the grid.
We started offering beehive rental services in the year 2000 with the aim of farming bees in Auckland city and currently service the wider Auckland area including Rodney district, Franklin district, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki, Rotorua, Wellington, and Christchurch.
Our initial visit is free of charge. We come for a visit to go through your gardens/backyards and plan where on the site is suitable for the bees. The second visit includes placement of the beehive.
We take care of the bees which includes any extra call outs, disease checks, varroa mite control measures, checking store levels, site registration, swarm prevention and collection.
We are all about teaching and knowledge sharing; therefore if you are willing to learn then feel free to join us during inspections to observe our beekeeping techniques and methods.
Depending on the chosen honey plan, there are options available during harvest season: we can scrape the honey into your buckets or you can receive honey in jars.
