City-grown honey is a “symphony for the taste buds,” according to local beekeeper Robert MacKimmie. The founder of City Bees has been raising honey bees and harvesting their liquid gold in San Francisco since 1996.
“San Francisco is just a really remarkable honey city,” the longtime apiarist said. And he should know. He’s been raising bees in the city for 27 years. “Each neighborhood has its own unique botany, and that translates into unique flavors that result from each neighborhood's weather.”
