15 Renegade Beehives were set up in the spring of 2023 and they will start to produce honey immediately. Our small beehive garden is located at Renegade Estate, in a remote and ecologically clean area.
In 2022 we offered our community to become sponsors of the beehives and 24 people opted in. Each beehive can however have 2 sponsors, so we currently have 6 hives with only one "parent" so 6 people can still join our small beehive community.
As a sponsor of a beehive, you will receive each year 10% of the harvest, produced by your adopted bee family. This arrangement will be in place minimum until 2042 when our current lease for the land ends. Depending on the weather of a specific year, the quantity would be anywhere from 1,5 to 4 kg and there would be at least 2 different types of honey.
The adoption fee includes shipping to your address during the first 3 years (2023-2025). Starting from 2026 you would need to cover the actual shipping costs every year in order to receive your honey.
Key things to keep in mind:
- You will receive 10% of the actual production, not a fixed quantity. The amount of honey changes from year to year, as it always does in nature. We will give you a detailed overview of the harvest whenever we take out honey, also explaining the background.
- Each time we take out honey, it is different, as different plants bloom at different times. You will receive 10% from all different harvests of the season, so you will have different honey for different occasions.
- To receive your honey, you will need to place an order via our e-shop each year. The shipping is free during 2023-2025, after that, you need to pay according to the actual shipping cost. Placing the order every year is required in order to make sure that we will send the honey to the correct address and there is someone to accept the delivery. We will let you know once the time comes to make the order.
- In case it turns out during the first shipment in 2023 that due to the customs regulations we are unable to ship the honey to your country, we will issue a full refund for your adoption.
