Are you interested in beekeeping but don't have the time or space to set up a colony of your own?
Consider buying a share in a beehive! We will add your hive to our apiary here in southern Minnesota, manage the colony for you, and send quarterly email updates on the progress of the bee yard, along with photos of your bees at work. As a bonus, you will receive a portion of the harvestable honey from your hive at the end of the season! Enjoy the fun and benefits of beekeeping without the chance of being stung. More information about our farm and hive shares can be found at: https://ofbees.com/hive-shares
All hive shares include:
- Emailed printable hive share certificate - great for gifting!
- Honey from your hive mailed to you after harvest in the fall/early winter, usually October-November. (If your hive does not produce any excess honey, the honey will be shared from one of the nearby hives within the apiary. Honey NOT included in the friend-of-bees only tier.)
- Honey bottles feature customized sponsor labels with your name of choice - great for gifting! (Not included with Mead shares or Native Bee shares.)
- Email updates about your hive throughout the year
- Your name added to the thank you list on our website
A hive share, renewable annually, is a great way to support bees and to connect with a source of sustainably raised honey. It is a way for people to help share in the costs of beekeeping without the extra responsibility of personally managing a hive! We do not use any antibiotics or chemical treatments in our hives and try to manage them as close to nature as possible. A hive share also makes a fantastic gift for any bee (or honey!) lover in your life.

We charged your card and sent you a receipt
Thank you for your support of a hive share, you have made a wonderful effort towards restoring these wonderful little pollinators alive and thriving now and into the future!
We will contact you shortly via email with your certificate, if requested. Welcome emails are usually sent later in the spring, around March-April, and then updates are sent through the summer season May-October. If you requested a certificate and do not receive an email within a few days to a week please check your spam filters and then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org - update emails often get caught in spam so check for 'foxloft.com' or your gumroad.com subscription account if you aren't getting updates over the summer.
Thank you again, you make our beekeeping efforts possible!
Good news! Since you already have a Gumroad account, it's also been added to your library.
