“Hope, Happiness, and Honeybees”

Our Family’s Company Story…

Back in 2004, our family’s honeybee business began when brothers John and Ben Gilmore began to collect bee swarms, and remove troublesome bees from buildings and trees. That year we formed “Bee Busters” and we captured a phenomenal amount of bee swarms. The next year (2005) more of the Gilmore family came on board, and “Colorado Pollination Company” (COPOCO) was born. We became a small commercial operation, run entirely by family. We provided pollination for many farmers in Northern Colorado, and then took our bees on vacation to California for the winter to pollinate the Almond crop. We spent several years focusing on online orders and farmers’ markets until finally, in 2009, we opened our new retail store located just north of Old Town on HW287! Members of our family have come and gone but the Gilmore family remains at the core of operations with Ben heading our beekeeping. As of 2020, we continue to aid in local beehive care and removal as well as tending to our own hives. Our family-made honey can be found all around town!
