Sponsoring a beehive
BienManger.com first launched its beehive sponsorship programme in the 2012-2013 season, firstly in collaboration with an apiary school in the neighbourhood in Lozère, and later on with beekeepers based in Lozère and in the south of France.
Our sponsorship programme helps to support local beekeepers in a way that is both eco-friendly and sustainable. Throughout the year you can keep up to date with everything that’s happening at the apiary, where you can follow all the different stages in the lifecycle of your beehive.
I sponsor a beehive!
When you choose to become a sponsor, you actively contribute to maintaining the biodiversity of the natural world by helping to protect the bee population.
Benefits of becoming a sponsor
In return for the financial sponsorship of a beehive, you will benefit from the hard work of your bees by receiving the honey they produce. The amount you receive will depend on the type of sponsorship you choose:
- Sponsorship of half a beehive = 8 x 500g jars
- Sponsorship of a whole beehive = 16 x 500g jars
Your honey is harvested in summer and you will receive your jars in September.
