Located in the cradle of American Beekeeping, the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild works to encourage and promote urban beekeeping through fellowship and education, and to raise awareness of the importance of bees to our environment.
The Philadelphia Bee Co. provides residents with locally produced bee products including honey, wax and pollen all gathered and made within city limits. Philadelphia is an ideal location for honey bees with large numbers of trees and urban gardens. We seek to educate our friends and neighbors about the importance of pollinators and honey bees in particular. Bees are of vital to our way of life as the plants they pollinate plants that make up more than 1/3 of our diet. Apples, pears, almonds and even beef (due to their alfalfa and clover feed stock) are all pollinator dependent.
