By pollinating fruits, vegetables, and trees around the globe, they literally ensure the survival of mankind. Certain flowers require bee pollination in order for them to fruit and then go to seed. Around the country, farmers and growers rely on bee pollination for their crop yields. Studies have shown that the proper pollination of crops by bees can produce 6 times the yield than without. The entire almond industry in the United States depends on beekeepers bringing hives of bees into the orchard to pollinate the almond trees. Without them, the supply would fail. Large orchards and farms sometimes pay $150 per hive per week in order to bring these little pollinators in from around the country.
We are able to provide you with local pollination services in the Flagstaff area for a fraction of that cost. Already we have partnered with individuals and community gardens in the area to help them save precious time with our bees, instead of trying to hand-pollinate the produce in their gardens and fields. This service is especially beneficial for local organic farms and those growing fruits and vegetables for sale in places like farmer’s markets and family farms. Our prices start as low as $10 per week for a hive in your garden or field and can remain there from May-September if you wish.
If you run a community garden or are interested in hosting a hive at your school we will even provide you with a seasonal hive for FREE!
