WE DIG THE POLLINATORS AND THE PRODUCERS
Bees are a big deal to us and should be for you too. Because a world without bees is a bleak one. And a famished one.
Set aside for a moment about how tasty and good for you honey is, and take a moment to think about this. Seventy out of the top 100 human food crops, which supply about 90 percent of the world’s nutrition, are pollinated by bees.
That’s a lot of critical sustenance. It’s a scary amount of our food supply to jeopardize. What’s more, they’re also responsible for pollinating some of the healthiest foods for us like nuts, fruits, and vegetables.
What they do for us is simply incredible. Their positive impact is undeniable and you’d think we’d treat them with more reverence than we do today.
Fortunately, in recent years, there has been both a growing awareness of the severe harm being done to our worldwide honey bee population and what to do to support them.
This page will serve as a hub of information for bee facts, what we do to support our bees, and what you can do too. Don’t worry, it’s not hard.
Market Place Honey
We wanted more bees in our world and in Alameda so we installed several hives on our rooftop. We also sponsor several throughout Alameda.
Our hives are tended to by Mike Vigo of The Bee Ranchers. We make hyper-local honey for you to enjoy too. There’s a lot to discover.
