FAQ

Do I have to help take care of my hive?

Nope! We perform all necessary management for the hives year round.

How much is 5 lbs of honey?

Honey is sold by weight, not volume, and the density of honey varies slightly for different hives and different years. Five lbs (80 oz) is approximately six and a half “squeezy bear” honey bottles. Sample pictures of our honey packaging are also available on our social media.

When do I get my hiveshare swag/honey?

Your Hiveshare swag will ship within 5 business days of your order.

Your honey will be shipped after our harvest in the fall, typically between late August and early September. As the date approaches we can provide more precise predictions for honey delivery. If you would like some honey sooner than that, please come find us at our farmers markets! (we advertise our appearances on our Instagram and Facebook pages)

How long does my hiveshare last?

Our 2019 Hiveshares last for one season.

If I buy a whole share, can I come and get the hive that I own?

No, sorry! It is healthier for beehives to be as stationary as possible. Additionally, our hives are placed on small local farms who rely on our pollination services. If you are interested in us setting up a hive on your property, check out our beekeeping services page.

Can restaurants or other local businesses purchase hiveshares?

Yes! If you are a restaurateur or business owner interested in branding or marketing opportunities, please email us at contact@halfacrebeekeeping.com. 

What happens if my hive fails/my bees die?

If your hive fails we will replace it at no cost to you. 

May I pay via check?

Yes! If you would prefer to bypass our online store, just email us at contact@halfacrebeekeeping.com. Or come meet us at a farmer's market! (we advertise our appearances on our Instagram and Facebook pag
