Castro Valley Honey Harvest
October 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Castro Valley Honey is almost here.
Come be a part of the first harvest of our rooftop honey. Your local bees have been busy and soon you’ll get a chance to bring some hyper-local liquid gold home with you.
On Wednesday, October 21st, our beekeeper Mike of The Bee Ranchers will be extracting the honey in the Castro Valley Marketplace.
We’re big on bees in our company, and of course, had to have hives on the Castro Valley rooftop where four of them are going strong. The honey is nice and all, but the reason we keep bees is that they keep us fed and they need our protection.
They’ve propped up ecosystems for tens of millions of years, and are responsible for pollinating about 90% of the world’s nutrition. That’s kind of a big deal.
Maybe you’ve seen one of our honeybees bounding about town, so now would be a great time for you and your families to get a direct connection to their work.
Come see for yourself the final steps of the process of fresh honey being made as it’s extracted, spun, and bottled right on site. Mike’s got an encyclopedic knowledge of everything bee. It’s a great chance to learn all about beekeeping, bees, honey, and any other bee-related questions you’ve got.
