Bee escapes and much more!
We also rent a honey extractor for $25 per day.
We feature local honey, so if you don’t have bees yourself, you can purchase their sweet goodness. Our honey is all produced in the East Bay, some from backyard beekeepers living just blocks away from our store. Honey is a local sugar source and can help lessen allergies if they are pollen-related.
