"This is the most flavorful and delicious honey I've ever had! I put it on everything and am totally guilty of just eating it straight from the jar with a spoon."

Urban Honey is Sold Out! - It will be back soon!

Empty Jar

Today I delivered the last jars of Urban Honey to both Willy Street Co-Ops and Hy-Vee East. That’s it, I am sold out.

Urban Honey is bottled in small batches right after being extracted from the honeycomb. This also means that when it is gone, it is gone. But it will be back, and soon!

When will it return? The bees are hard at working building up their numbers to start gathering the spring blooms. I should have all 3 sizes of jars back in stores sometime in June.

What can you do to make sure you get Urban Honey? Support Mad Urban Bees by joining the Urban Honey CSA. Not only are you helping supporting getting the bees ready for spring, but you are also getting fresh, local honey as it is coming out of the hives.

It has been an amazing year, and it wouldn’t have been possible without your support. I look forward to getting you more Urban Honey soon!

Mermaid Cafe

I am proud to announce that Urban Honey can now be found at the Mermaid Cafe at 1929 Winnebago St. in Madison. Stop in for some great, fresh, locally sourced food.

Learn beekeeping fundamentals at the Round Rock Beekeeping Academy in Madison WI. This 2.5-hour class is for those wanting to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Although the class is designed mostly for those with little or no beekeeping knowledge or experience, persons with some limited experience are also encouraged to sign up.

Beekeeping Class
Sign up now!

The class is taught by beekeeper Nathan Clarke and covers a basic introduction to bees, beekeeping and hives, how-to information for keeping bees in Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter and disease and parasite management. Each class allows students the opportunity to suit up (bee suits provided), and gain hands-on experience at our onsite apiary.

Our integrated workshops teach participants all they need to know to completely assemble their own hives, populate the hives with honeybees, and harvest honey. They take this knowledge to the next step of purchasing their own bees and equipment, and establishing their own hives.

This class is being taught through a partnership with Round Rock Honey Beekeeping Academy.
Special Note: All participants must be at least 7 years old and are required to adhere to our dress code in order to participate. This class takes place outdoors. Please wear appropriate clothing and closed-toe footwear.

Urban Honey will be for sale after class, but is not included in the price of the class.

Meeting Location: North-East side of Madison, WI.
(Exact meeting location details will be provided upon purchase of tickets.)
