What kind of honey is it? People ask me, "What kind of honey is this?" I tell them, "its everything that’s blooming when the bees are around. Its honeysuckle, goldenrod, vegetables in the garden, crab apple blossoms, even dandelions."
How does the honey taste? My honey has a unique flavor that is light, floral, and spicy. It also changes with the seasons. I extract honey from my hives every few weeks to showcase the changing of the seasons and flavors in the honey.
What are the benefits to urban honey? For people who use honey to combat their allergies, this is a great product. The urban honey contains the pollen from flowers and trees in the neighborhoods where they live. It's hard to get more local than that. You are also helping pollinate your garden and you neighbors' garden. You are helping the city grow and thrive.
Are your beeswax products made with your beeswax? Yes, all of the beeswax used in my natural beeswax body products comes from my hives. The wax was collected during the honey extraction process. I use a double boiler to melt and purify the wax.
How do I become a beehive host? I’m no longer having my hives hosted in other people’s yards. I still keep bees at Olbrich Gardens and at the Aldo Leopold Center.
