The Buzz on Florida's Honey Bees


Come celebrate honey bees with The Zest! Join us at Sweetwater Organic Farm on Nov. 10 from 2-4 p.m. We’re hosting a live taping of the podcast and interviewing some bee experts. Find out what it takes to get started in beekeeping, and why you should care about Florida’s honey bees. Plus, there will be lots of different local honeys for you to taste.


Florida is one of the nation’s largest producers of honey and is a hub for beekeeping, both commercially and as a hobby. In a special reporting collaboration, WUSF News and the Zest Podcast are taking a closer look at honey bees over the next few weeks.
