Whether you’re winding down or turning up, we’ve got you covered with local honey!
Collected in Park Slope by Union Street Honey, you can grab a jar from the early or the late season of last year’s harvest. Like the Riesling of honey, these jars are filled with a nectar that is fruity and bright- perfect for a cocktail, mocktail or evening cup of tea!
Not only is this honey delicious, but it also comes to us from a well cared for hive of bees that live right around the corner on a Union street rooftop. This honey helps keep a local beekeeper in business and it helps protect the declining honeybee population.
Sourced and harvested locally, this honey is a true taste of Brooklyn!
