Hive Sponsorship


This is a great way to bring a little bit of nature into your business whilst also fulfilling your business’s commitment to being environmentally responsible.  At Ivy Cottage Bees we are passionate about pollinators and promoting the benefits these insects play in maintaining our ecosystem.   Your business can directly contribute to the protection and conservation of our precious pollinators and at the same time work towards meeting your Environmental Social Governance (ESG) commitments.

Our hive sponsorship, ‘Adopt-a-Hive’ is a great way to engage with stakeholders, create positive change within your community and spread awareness of the importance of pollinators.  All packages can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of your business, whether you are looking for a unique corporate responsibility initiative, a team-building activity or an education programme.

Our standard package includes:

  • Sponsorship for one year of a hive in our beautiful Apiary in Little Canfield which will be managed by one of our experienced beekeepers

  • A personalised company logo mounted to your hive, creating a visible sign of your commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility

  • A personalised framed certificate of your sponsorship

  • Regular updates throughout the year, with pictures and videos, of your bees with updates on how their season is progressing

  • An apiary visit during the summer months for up to 6 people where they can get up close and personal with your hive.  Our 2-hour bee experience will give you an insight into the bees and their roles within the hive and the chance to handle frames and spot the Queen

  • A team picture

  • Three jars of honey from your bees at the end of the season when the final harvest has been taken


  • Increase the number of people attending the bee experience session or add honey tasting, candle rolling, or a picnic lunch to the day

  • A beekeeper talk of your choice or from one of our chosen topics delivered at your office or conference venue

  • A talk at a local school or for a charity of your choice with the option of us bringing along an observation hive (subject to the time of year)

  • A discount for your employees or customers for purchases made through our website

  • Your business will provide a home for up to 72,000 honeybees

  • Your business will be contributing towards raising awareness of the importance of pollinators and how we can make more sustainable choices

A note about carbon offsetting and bees


While sponsoring a beehive does not directly offset carbon emissions, it does indirectly contribute to mitigating climate change by supporting the health and wellbeing of pollinators.

Bees are important pollinators that play a crucial role in our ecosystem and contribute to the growth of many of the foods we eat. By sponsoring a beehive, you're supporting the conservation and protection of these vital creatures and their habitats.  Not only does this help to protect and promote biodiversity, but it also supports the growth of plants and flowers that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which helps to offset your carbon footprint. So, by sponsoring a beehive, you can make a positive impact on the environment while also contributing to the environmental value of your business.
