Seeing the honey bees at the farmer's market yesterday led me to do a little internet searching about bees. It turns out, there are not only locally based beekeepers in the upstate area... there are beekeepers right here in Brooklyn!

Brooklyn Bee makes artisinal honey and keeps their bees on a rooftop in an undisclosed location in Fort Greene. This is because it is technically illegal to beekeep in New York City. These guys are careful, experienced and safe, though, so I am totally accepting of their lawlessness.

Check them out here. And here is a video of their craft in action. If you want to learn how to keep your own bees safely, check out the New York City Beekeeping Meetup Group.
