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 laws and regulations vary on a county-level basis. Free Range Beehives stays current on local ordinances, and we are working with local governments to help add urban beekeeping to green ordinances, which could lead to allowing businesses to more easily adhere to governmental sustainability programs through corporate beekeeping.

Beekeeping is a very localized practice, because bees forage on different food sources and experience different weather conditions depending on where they are located.

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 developing more and more local beekeeping expertise, and applying our knowledge and experience to all of our hives.
