Honey is a valuable commodity that is most beneficial when it is fresh and local. Currently, there is no other company based in the City of Newark offering beekeeping training and resources or local honey at an affordable rate. We chose beekeeping and agriculture to center our business because we thought it would be a good way to provide direct / indirect benefits to the environment and community.
