Seattle Bee Works offers honey sales, hive hosting, and learning opportunities for Seattle beekeepers and bee lovers. With the goal of raising awareness for the important role honeybees have in our food supply and environment, founder Krista Conner has been beekeeping since 2007, starting with just two hives in a friend’s backyard in Seattle.
