Interested in having a hive but don’t know where to begin or simply don’t have the time to manage one? Then having a hive on your property managed by our team is a good option. Under a managed hive arrangement, the Alaska Honey Collective provides:
- The hive(s) and bees
- Regular hive checks and feeding
- Honey extraction, bottling, and labeling
The property owner provides:
- Space and sunshine for the hive(s)
- An interest in bees
In an average year, expect 3-4 gallons (36-48 lbs) of honey from your hive. If your hive struggles or fails (it happens sometimes), we’ll provide 3 gallons of honey from one of our other local hives.
Managed hives are only available in the Fairbanks and North Pole area. A managed hive agreement will be emailed a day or two after purchase. The agreement must be in place before the hive and bees are placed on your property.
