Apiary

Brooklyn Grange Bees, AKA BGBees, is what we affectionately call our Apiary division.  What’s an apiary?  Just a fancy term for a bee farm!  But our take is maybe a bit different from the traditional country model in that it’s located on multiple rooftops throughout NYC.  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 posed by commercial agriculture.  Not only are we breeding local bees, we are breeding local beekeepers!
