The long wait for the first local honey harvest of the year is officially over! We’re proud to have the latest harvest of Brooklyn Bee honey – harvested right here in Fort Greene – in the shop. The Brooklyn Bee is John Howe, the sweetest beekeeper you’d ever want to meet, a driving force behind the recent legalization in urban NYC beekeeping and a bee educator par excellence. For more information about John and his educational outreach programs, check out his website.
Every year, John’s limited harvest goes quickly. Local honey, in addition to be thought to have many beneficial anti-allergenic effects, makes a great gift. If you’re a guest anywhere for the rest of the summer, grab an extra jar as a host/hostess gift.
