Beekeeping is Local!

 

We have lived and worked in the Front Range of Colorado for over 30 years. Our kids were born here. Free Range Beehives is a 2-generation, family-owned business. We serve as board members of local beekeeping associations, support our local beekeeping suppliers, and know our fellow beekeepers.

Beekeeping is a very localized practice, due to everything from county legislation to the different food sources the bees have available to the weather conditions they face. When you trust someone with the care of your hives, you want to be sure they know all the factors involved!

In summary, there are numerous factors that only a local beekeeper who has been working with these industrious insects in a regional setting will know how to properly address. It takes time, effort, and devotion to learn the minutia of an ecosystem. Here at Free Range Beehives we are dedicated to further developing our local beekeeping expertise, and applying our knowledge and experience to all of our hives.
