How often does the honey get harvested?
Typically once a year.
Is the honey only used in the hotel or can it be purchased separately?
The honey is used in house for restaurant production but is also sold in the 1917 Market in two different sizes.
How many bees live in the Embassy Suites hives?
It varies depending on the time of year but the number can range from 3 to 30 thousand.
What’s the advantage of using honey from an on-site beehive?
Consuming local honey alleviates allergies in the neighborhood. Preserving honey bees’ role as natural pollinators helps the community in pollinating food and flowers.
Can visitors see the beehives or is it staff only?
The beehives are located in the back of the hotel near our garden beds. Guests are welcome to look but are not able to enter the apiary.
1917 deeply embraces health, purpose, and all-natural products by harvesting its own honey in the on-site apiary.
