It all started in 2011 on the rooftop of farming company Brooklyn Grange in a partnership with local beekeepers. It was a true celebration of the local apiarists, honeybees and the honey we all buy and love. In 2017, Wilk Apiary took the helm of the NYC Honey Festival ~ and this year, the 9th Annual Honey Festival will be run by the newly formed Queens Beekepers Guild, Inc to be held on Saturday, September 14th.
