CSA means Community-Supported Agriculture - it is your opportunity to support & bring awareness to our vanishing honey bees, supporting local & beekeepers who are attempting to increase the bee population while in return, you receive local, raw honey and a chance to meet the be keeper and get involved in building your own hives too.
By joining our CSA you are supporting and bringing awareness to the vanishing honey bee populations while helping our local beekeepers. For your patronage you will receive raw, local honey, a chance to meet our beekeepers, and educational information on how to start your own hives. The honey is made of any flowers my bees happen to visit, which is mostly wild flowers. It is natural, unprocessed and unpasteurized. Honey should not be given to babies under one year of age. With over 60 years combined beekeeping experience, Westside Bee Boyz is committed to educating and promoting urban beekeeping, honeybees, & other pollinators. We pride ourselves in taking a natural approach to beekeeping, avoiding potentially harmful chemicals & treatments.

We'll have multiple locations across Chicago you can pick up your honey from, one downtown and most likely one on the north side and one on the south side as well. We expect honey to be available for pick-up August and October. We will announce two or three pick-up time windows as we get closer to the date.
We are setting up some working hives on the UIC campus for teaching opportunities for 2016 and we will also have local hive tours late spring of 2016.
