fringe  who?  what?  where?

The truth is that it's fun to make great tasting drinks.  (And a lot of hard work too!)  We like to make mead because we like to drink mead.  But a large motivating factor is that we want to support the bees.  They've been having a rough time of it lately due to environmental stresses and the pressures put upon them.  To keep our plants growing and our food flowing, we need to attend more deeply to our beloved little pollinators.

Our aim is to promote greater public awareness of bees and their importance to our food chain and natural environment. We will be collaborating with urban bee keepers and organizations to host educational events and show what we can do as individuals to support the bees--and ultimately ourselves--into the future.

Searching for the best honey has led me straight to the source:  the bees.  I realize now that in order to get the best honey, you need the healthiest bees.  And to get the healthiest bees, you need the most supportive environment.  Which comes from a nurturing community.  Which is made up of You and Me.





























Our original Kickstarter videos explain it all.

Speaking with Matt Reed of Bee Thinking about urban bee keeping, honey and mead.

Rex McIntire from CR Honey talking about the emotional and therapeutic impact of bee keeping.


Go to your fields and your gardens,
and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee
to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.

For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure
is a need and an ecstasy.

People of Earth be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.
