Just watched a very interesting program on terrestrial UK tv this evening.
A chap was interviewed on the 67th floor of a Marriott hotel where he has set up 2 beehives. The program did not name the hotel, but a little research suggests it may be the Residence Inn & Courtyard by Marriott New York.
Apparently the honey is packaged and given to hotel guests as a gift when available.
Thanks for adding detail insertcoffee. The chap has over 60 other hive locations in the city. He sells some honey at markets at $18 a jar, that's lower end Manuka price, so must be good quality.
Honey has gotten really 'upmarket' now that it has gotten the 'healthier than white sugar' stamp. But fresh honey can be stunningly good-- and expensive, too.
My folks used to mail me some special honeys they used to pick up on trips and so on, and it makes my mouth water to think of them.
There are actually several beekeepers associations in NY alone, something which surprised me to discover when I was finding the link in the other post.
I would definitely much rather have honey than Nutella, though I understand the fandom behind Nutella.
Hi Insiders! We took a look to see if we could provide any more details about this. While I don't have much more information to give you then what is provided above, we were able to find out that the following two hotels also have bee hives on the roof tops:
Thanks carat. I've stayed at all of those properties and somehow have never seen the apiary at any of them. What a great program, especially with the bee issues we've had in recent years vis a vis population etc.
