In celebration of Earth Day, our team at Fini is partnering with The Best Bees Company to shed light on the importance of a different kind of essential worker.. honeybees! Anyone who eats food, needs bees. As pollinators of over 70 fruit and vegetable crops that we humans rely upon, bees contribute over $15 billion to the United States economy annually. By supporting bees, we can increase food security for people across the globe.
The Best Bees Company is an all-inclusive beekeeping service, professionally managing honey beehives for homeowners and businesses alike. Their humble beginnings were right here in Boston, crafting beehives for friends and family in the South End. Since then, they have grown to take care of over 1,000 beehives for hundreds of clients in 12 cities across the country.
The Best Bee Company’s mission is to improve bee health and expand the bee population. Since 2010, they’ve made a tangible, positive impact on the environment, one beehive at a time. They are honored to have had a hand in the preservation of this precious pollinator and are excited to share how our services allow you to do the same!
