Trendspotter Springwise has a sweet article on urban beekeeping. Omlet’s Beehaus kit brings the practice back down to earth for individual consumers.
The Beehaus comes as a complete hive ready for colonization, with all the parts necessary including honey jars and a comprehensive beekeeping guide. Priced at GBP 465, the Beehaus is available in a choice of colours, and it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
An optional starter kit, meanwhile, includes the accessories a first-time beekeeper will need, such as a bee suit, veil, smoker and hive tools.
An average, colonized Beehaus will produce 50 jars of honey per year, UK-based Omlet says, with the potential for up to 100kg if things go well.
Will consumers tire of producing their own, hand-cultivated food? Survey says no, particularly during these rough economic times.
