Hellgate Farm Apiary - 11102 Astoria

In May of 2012 we added another hive on the rear roof of a wonderful Urban Farm in Astoria.

Even though we have a no ladder beekeeping policy, Rob the owner promised that we would eventually not have to use a ladder to access the site. 

Rob and his crew built a beautiful deck up to the 2 honeybee hives we had on the roof. We then slowly moved the colonies across the deck 3 feet a week until we got them to their new locations overlooking the farm and the chicken coup.

The honey from these hives is bottled in our Zip Code Local Honey 11102 Astoria as well as in our Queens Blossoms Honey.
