Adopt a Beehive

Our Adopt a Beehive scheme is a great way to do your bit for the environment and assist with your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), it also helps demonstrate how committed you are to helping the environment. Maybe you have thought of the idea of having a beehive but don’t have the time to look after it. Adopting a beehive from Market Harborough Honey Co. will result in many immediate environmental benefits.  Once the beehive is deployed to one of our apiaries, the bees will get to work straight away helping the planet like these other adopted beehives.

Through our beehive adoption programme you will be making a direct impact on the environment. We need everyone to help promote pollinators and other insects. Supporting our beehive adoption scheme means we can increase our hive numbers which in turn has a positive impact on the environment.

Environmental Benefits of Beehive Adoption

  • Bees are crucial for pollination of plants and crops

  • Bees are required for biodiversity and environmental protection

  • Sustainable farming and income to farmers. Cultivated plants require bees to pollinate them, sustainable farming provides jobs and food that goes on our plates.

  • Bees contribute to very complex, interconnected ecosystems that allow a diverse number of different species to co-exist.

  • Bees and insects add in the region of £200 – £400 million into the UK economy through pollination of crops every year.

  • Not just crops, bees also contribute to the growth of wild flowers and plants
