Queen Bee

It’s no secret that you love a good buzz.

Cameo Wood can totally empathize. So much so that the local beekeeper went to great lengths to open SF’s first urban beekeeping shop (that we know of) in the former Built by Wendy Mission enclave.

Upon entering the world curated around the little stingers, you’ll discover honeys and honeycomb from local hives; fruit spreads (dried cherries with honey); nut-and-honey snacks; beekeeping start-up kits; and gear, books, and medicinal pollen (you can even order the buzzers themselves).

Stop by for monthly honey infusions (first up: truffle honey), rare honey tastings (illegal samples from beekeeping-forbidden NYC or Hawaiian lehua), and monthly classes where you’ll learn to make mead (honey wine).

Talk about earning your stripes.

Her Majesty’s Secret Beekeeper, 3520 20th Street, between Mission and Valencia Streets (415-744-1465 or hmsb.bigcartel.com).
