Little Bee Project started in 2011 as a hobby with the placement of two hives in my backyard of East Atlanta with the intent on making the neighborhood a better place through urban agriculture. Those two hives have now grown to ten and consist of two bee yards or apiaries. The individual hives are managed as naturally as possible without the use of harsh chemical treatments and with the accepted responsibility to keep the colonies healthy and strong.
Similar to wineries that use bin numbers to sort and label a particular wine, Little Bee Project assigns a number to each honey referring back to the apiary where the nectar was gathered and honey was produced. The number is a reference to the street address where the apiary is located. As Little Bee Project expands into additional bee yards, look for more numbered and unique honey harvests.
