An Ultimate Beekeeping Experience Ever ask yourself, "How does honey make it from the bee to my kitchen?" Come see for yourself and take a hands-on advanced beekeeping class with SF Honey & Pollen Co. Through hands-on instruction you will learn the entire process of bottling honey, From the Hive to the Bottle. Suit up and look like a real beekeeper! All students are supplied a full bee suit prior to going into the apiary. Hands-on education. Students themselves, go into living, working bee hives. Where's the honey? Harvest honey straight from the hive. Spin it! Students extract honey by hand, as well as use a giant centrifuge to spin it from the comb. Bottle it up! Every student gets to bottle their very own jar of honey. Class will start off at SF Honey & Pollen Co.'s urban apiary, located in San Francisco's Bayview District. There will be no boring schoolwork here! Students will immediately suit-up in professional beekeeping suits and step out into the yard. You will spend 1-2 hours opening working hives and collecting ready-to-harvest liquid gold (aka honey). With the hard work finished, the fun has only just begun! After closing up the hives and completing the work at the apiary, students will travel to SF Honey & Pollen Co.'s kitchen & bottling location, in the West Portal District of San Francisco. Once here, we'll take a break for lunch and visit a nearby, neighborhood Italian Delicatessen, where students will have the choice of purchasing their own lunch (or may bring their own). When lunch is over, it's back to work! Students will take the honey harvested earlier in the day and extract it with their own hands. After a few more steps to complete the process, students help in bottling the day's reward, honey! Each student gets to bottle their own 8oz jar of liquid gold.

Response Time:
John McDonald founded SF Honey & Pollen Co. in 2006. His love for nature and the outdoors as well as his unforgiving curiosity, led him to the discovery of bees and honey. It began as a hobby and quickly evolved into something more. As he learned of the declining bee population and their important role in our everyday lives he made it his mission to become part of the urban beekeeping movement. He began his journey through a friend and fellow beekeeper, learning the ins-and-outs of beekeeping and everything he needed to get started. Soon, John built his own hive boxes and put three of them in the yard at his shop. Before he knew it, he was putting hives in the backyards of family, friends, and neighbors. This of course, left him with more honey than he knew what to do with. A business was born. He began bottling and selling his honey and teaching classes on beekeeping. He currently runs 50+ hives in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, helping to keep local organic farms alive through pollination!
