Our Urban bees at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center

Located atop a five story parking structure.
The bees arrived in summer 2013 as the Hyatt unveiled it’s new Root25 restaurant and tap house.  The Hyatt is committed to locally sourced, sustainably farmed food for the restaurant.  The rooftop honey harvests of 2014,  2015, and 2016 were very sweet!

 

Our Country bees at The Ugly Goat

Located in rural Weld county, surrounded by prairie, pasture and gardens. The bees share their space with dairy cows, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and dairy goats.  Installed in 2013, the country bees made honey to share their very first season.

 Home base bees in McArthur Ranch

Located on five acres of western scrub oak and Colorado wildflowers in Douglas County, CO.   These bees are neighbors to Highlands Ranch, Wildcat Reserve, Lone Tree, and Castle Pines.  This is where our beekeeping adventure began.

Each year is unique.  The climate, the blooms, and the bees conspire together to make something special for this PLACE and time.
