Follow the Honey (www.followthehoney.com, also see our friends list at the right of the page) is a remarkable retail store in Harvard Square (Cambridge, MA) that sells all things honey. They sell specialty honeys from all over the world, as well as local honeys from our very own Massachusetts beekeepers. This store is absolutely something special. Honey stores are somewhat common in other parts of the world, such as in Iran, where honey sellers are an important part of the local culture. Follow the Honey brings this special tradition to us here in the United States, and everyone should check it out.
We at Best Bees Company have teamed up with Follow the Honey by installing and managing an *indoor* honey bee hive inside the retail store. These live in a unique hive made of wood, wax, and glass, so viewers can observe everything the bees are doing. They live in an observation hive, in the same setup that we provide classrooms (see www.classroomhives.com). The Follow the Honey bees have a very special story. Read all about them through the link below, and come visit them in Cambridge to see them close up!
