Bee Keepers in Kenya – Promoting Sustainable Beekeeping and Agroforestry in Kenya

Yatta Bee Keepers is a bee keeping company dedicated to promoting beekeeping and agroforestry in Kenya. The company employs effective bee management techniques that not only conserve biodiversity and natural bee populations but also contribute to forage tree conservation, thereby mitigating the effects of climate change.

Our Achievements

  • 10,000+ Natural Bee Colonies Protected: Through dedicated efforts, Yatta Bee Keepers has successfully protected over 10,000 natural bee colonies. This achievement underscores the company’s commitment to conserving these vital pollinators, which play a crucial role in maintaining ecological balance and enhancing agricultural productivity.
  • 50,000+ Forage Trees Planted: Trees are integral to the ecosystem, providing habitat for bees and other wildlife, sequestering carbon, and improving soil health. Yatta Bee Keepers has planted over 50,000 forage trees, ensuring a sustainable source of nectar for bees and contributing to reforestation efforts.
  • 50,000+ Tons of Carbon Savings: The combined efforts in beekeeping and agroforestry have resulted in significant carbon savings, helping to combat climate change and promote a healthier environment for future generations.

Our Projects

  1. Adopt a Hive: This initiative allows individuals and organizations to sponsor beehives, providing vital support for the beekeeping activities. By adopting a hive, sponsors contribute to the sustainability of the projects and the conservation of bee populations.
  2. Elephant and Bee Projects: Yatta Bee Keepers collaborates with wildlife conservationists to develop projects that address human-elephant conflicts. By strategically placing beehives along elephant pathways, the company deters elephants from encroaching on farmlands, protecting both crops and these majestic creatures.
  3. Blue Economy: Mangrove and Bees Project: This innovative project combines beekeeping with mangrove conservation. Mangroves are critical for coastal protection and carbon sequestration, and by integrating beekeeping, Yatta Bee Keepers enhances biodiversity and provides additional income streams for coastal communities.
  4. Beekeeping Workshops and Seminars: Education is a cornerstone of Yatta Bee Keepers’ mission. The company conducts workshops and seminars to train farmers in modern beekeeping techniques, ensuring they have the knowledge and skills to manage their hives effectively and sustainably.
  5. Sustainable Agroforestry: One Beehive One Tree Project: This project aims to link beekeeping with tree planting efforts. For every beehive managed, a tree is planted, fostering a symbiotic relationship that benefits both the bees and the environment.
