GW is Buzzing with Honey Bees… Again

Theeyyyy’reeee baaaacckkk! Last weekend, The George Washington University Undergraduate Honey Bee Research Laboratory and Apiary team welcomed their first delivery of honey bees to DC for the season.

For the seventh year in a row, Founding Farmers is thrilled to support the largest urban apiary in DC, and the amazing undergraduate urban beekeeping research project headed up by Dr. Hartmut Doebel.

The research team focuses on different aspects of honey bee life and health, while providing a safe place for our urban pollinators. Later this summer, we’ll join the annual honey harvest and take the delicious GW honey to our nearby distillery located right inside our sibling restaurant, Farmers & Distillers. For the second year in a row, we will craft our very special, award-winning Limited Edition Founding Spirits Amaro. This year’s version is still available for purchase online, at Farmers & Distillers, and select stores around DC.

Stay tuned for apiary updates throughout the busy, buzzing honey bee season. To see what’s happening in real time, you can tune in to the GW apiary’s very cool live bee cam. For more apiary information, check out the GWBuzz website.
