High Line Honey Day

EnlargeHoney Day

We’re teaming up with Brooklyn Grange to bring beekeepers from all five boroughs to the High Line for honey tastings and activities for kids.

Taste your way through New York City’s first artisanal honey market. Friends of The High Line and the Brooklyn Grange Farm invite you to meet beekeepers from all five boroughs at this pop-up gathering of spectacular, sustainable, hyper-local food producers.

Meet the beekeepers and take home a jar of your favorite borough’s honey.

Get an up-close-and-personal look at the inside of a beehive through a glass-paned demonstration hive. Sharpen your eyes to spot the queen bee, or catch a glimpse of the nuanced “waggle dance” that bees use to communicate the location of nectar hot spots. Learn which High Line plants these pollinators love to snack on.
