Annual Service Fee

We offer beehive placement and management services for an annual fee of $350 per hive. To qualify for an agricultural exemption in any given year, bees must be placed on your property by the end of May, as in Harris County and most other counties, bees need to be present for at least 7 months of the year.

Service Area

We currently serve Cypress - Harris County, Hempstead/Pattison - Waller County, Bellville - Austin County, and Columbus/Weimar - Colorado County. For surrounding areas, we collaborate with local beekeeping partners to ensure service availability.

Turn-Key Ag-Exemption Services

Our Ag-Exemption services are turn-key operations, meaning the landowner does not have to be involved. We handle everything from beehive placement to routine maintenance, ensuring your property qualifies for the agricultural exemption with minimal effort on your part.

Inclusive Services

The annual fee includes routine maintenance visits (8-10 times per year or more) to check on the bees, provide feed and treatments, and replace any hives lost during the year. We ensure to notify property owners prior to our visits unless instructed otherwise and require unrestricted access to the bees for proper maintenance.

Termination Fee

Should you decide to end the contract, a move-out fee of 20% of the annual lease agreement applies, unless you lease bees for 3 years or more.

DIY Option

For property owners interested in managing their own hives, we offer Nuc's for $200 each, transferred into your equipment, consisting of three frames of brood and one feed frame. Delivery incurs an additional charge of $50 per Nuc.

Ag-Exemption Specifics

We primarily manage single-stack hives on properties with agricultural exemptions and may not harvest honey from these specific locations. However, during years of good harvest, we offer quarts of honey for $20-$25 each from your or surrounding apiaries exclusively to our Ag-Exemption clients.

Potential County and Beekeeper Requirements for Bees

In Harris County and most other counties, bees need to be present for at least 7 months out of the year. Additionally, the following potential requirements might apply:

  • Bees must be accessible by truck.

  • Bees should be positioned in full sunlight.

  • Bees should be within 50 feet of a water source.

  • Bees should be outside of flood zones. Proper documentation of hive maintenance and health might also be required to meet both county and beekeeper standards.

Site Requirements

Your land must already have an Ag-Exemption, or it will take 5 years for the land to qualify for the exemption.  Additionally, we ensure your property meets or exceeds the criteria for the Ag-Exemption.
