Joining the growing group of NYC apiarists, the Whitney Museum has been caring for bee hives since 2010.
We commissioned the artist Kiki Smith to design a label, which reads “Flora Honey,” in honor of Flora Miller Biddle, the museum’s former president and the granddaughter of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, its founder.
This year we were able to harvest enough honey to offer it for limited sale. Packaged in eight ounce hexagonal jars. Label designed by Kiki Smith, 2012. The taste is very flora, as the name suggests.
We had a limited quantity of Whitney Museum honey and it is nearly gone. Now, we are taking reservations for the 2013 crop. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you want to purchase some of our 2013 crop and we will let you know once it is in stock.
Members' price $15.20
