Local Buzz: Beekind Opens Shop at the Ferry Building

The latest buzz at the Ferry Building is the opening of Beekind, an outpost of the Sebastopol-based honey operation that sells natural, raw and pesticide-free products.  Officially open today, the stand offers a selection of honey sourced locally from eco-conscious beekeepers throughout California – from locales such as Point Reyes, San Francisco and Greenbrae– as well as a few exotic regions including New Zealand.

Throughout the year, 52 different seasonal varieties of honey line the shelves of Beekind, so you can sample the nuances of sage, eucalyptus or sunflower nectar to see which fits your cup of tea.   Prices are average (I paid $11 for 16 oz of California Sage honey), but it’s the knowledge of the Beekind staff that definitely gives additional value to your purchase.   Whether you need to know the ideal honey for drizzling on oatmeal or the best immunity booster, their recommendations on the “nectar of the gods” are spot on.

The California Sage honey I purchased is delicious.  Full-bodied but slightly drier than sweeter varieties, it pairs well with both my afternoon green tea and blueberry-topped yogurt (and tastes great by the spoonful, too!).  So the next time you find yourself in need of the sweet stuff, head to the Ferry Building for this local treat and be kind to your health, the environment and the busy bees working hard to bring you quality California honey.

For more information and to make online purchases, visit www.beekind.com.  The stand at the Ferry Building is located at One Ferry Building, Suite 21B (415.307.8682) and sells honey and beeswax candles.  If you’re interested in beekeeping or want to go on a bee farm tour, head out of town and visit the Sebastopol location for additional bee-related activities and fun.
