Brooklyn Queen Honey is made by Margot Dorn’s bees in community gardens in Bed-Stuy, and Brownsville, Brooklyn. The daughter of a veterinarian and granddaughter of a farmer, Margot started Brooklyn Queen to connect with nature in the city, educate her students about beekeeping, and produce delicious honey to share with others. Through the bees she has made deep connections with their garden communities, making Brooklyn her home.
The honey is harvested two times a year and each harvest has a distinct taste from the blooms that were available in that season. When eating the honey you might think of the Black locusts from June, the Linden Trees that bloom in July, or the Golden Rod of Fall. Intensely floral and complex- you will never be able to enjoy supermarket honey again!
