Brooklyn Grange Bees, AKA BGBees, is New York City’s first and largest commercial apiary.  What’s an apiary?  Just a fancy term for a bee farm!  The Apiary is located within The Brooklyn Navy Yard’s 300 private acres, the perfect location for a tightly controlled, all natural, urban beekeeping operation. Featuring over 30 hives, the apiary produces loads of honey each year. Comb honey, wax, propolis, pollen – BGBees has it all.

In addition to hive products, Brooklyn Grange Bees hosts a beekeeping training program, training new beekeepers to keep their own colonies. While honey, hive products, and bees are our bread and butter, our core mission also includes spreading knowledge of these amazing creatures and increasing their numbers in the face of the chemical threat posted by commercial agriculture.  Not only are we breeding local bees, we are breeding local beekeepers!
