Farmers » Chicago Honey Co-op
honey, beeswax candles, bath products
- Indoor and outdoor markets
At three locations across Chicago, more than 50 beehives buzz with bees producing allnatural, chemical-free honey. With access to Humboldt, Garfield and Douglas Parks, these urban-dwelling bees visit a huge selection of flower species, and the diversity of their highly concentrated nectars results in high-quality, intensely flavored honey. Chicago Honey Co-op is the first agricultural cooperative in the city. Along with its commitment to sustainable agriculture, the co-op teaches beekeeping and works with hard-to-employ Chicagoans and community organizations to promote chemical-free beekeeping and related skills. As a partner in the preSERVE Garden, it plays an integral role in transforming neglected vacant land into productive community space where neighbors can learn to grow their own food. Pictured at right are co-op members Sydney Barton and Calvin Mitchell.
*Chicago Honey Co-Op returns to Green City Market at the end of July.
