Products and Services:
Mad Urban Bees LLC is an urban beekeeping business that produces small batches of raw, urban honey and focuses on community participation. Urban Honey changes with the seasons. I extract honey from my hives every few weeks to showcase the changing of the seasons and flavors in the honey. My hives are hosted by individuals in the cities of Madison and Middleton. My hosts are bee advocates--they are people who want bees in the city and understand the benefit that bees bring to our ecosystem in urban food landscape.
Philosophy:
I am already involved with the community and local businesses in a number of ways. I am currently selling honey wholesale to five local businesses, I offer an Urban Honey CSA, and all of my beehives that I manage are located on residential property in Madison and Middleton. I purchase all of my equipment from WI vendors. Bees thrive in Madison. Our city trees, parks, and gardens supply bees with food during the entire growing season. Clean water is never far away in Madison's many lakes, ponds, swamps, and streams. The city is a very healthy home for bees, and from them I produce a raw, unfiltered honey that is unique to Madison, a truly local honey.
History:
I started beekeeping 8 years ago with one hive in my backyard. I expanded from one hive to five hives over the next five years. The honey that came from my hive was so delicious and so different from anything that I ever tried. I started Mad Urban Bees in 2011 with the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds that I needed to get my business started. I looked to raise $7,000 for the equipment and bees I needed to start 40 hives. I raised a total of $10,221 from 123 backers. I now have over 40 hives located in a dozen backyards all over Madison.
