CSA Stands for Community Supported Apiary

Community-Supported Agriculture is a mutually supportive partnership between consumers and producers where shareholders (or members) pay upfront at the beginning of the season and share the “risks and rewards” inherent in agriculture. The farmer benefits by having a stable economic base at the beginning of the season while the CSA member benefits from knowing that she will have access to high quality produce while supporting regional farmers.

EastVan Bees is launching its Community-Supported Apiary! CSA members pay for an entire season of honey upfront (depending on what level they pick). Your apiarist (beekeeper) will deliver that share of produce to a convenient drop-off location in your neighborhood on a set number of occasions throughout the season depending on the level of shares purchased. This early bulk payment enables the beekeeper (apiarist) to plan for the season, purchase new equipment, make repairs, and more.

EastVan Bees Urban Honey comes from the flowers, trees, parks, and gardens of Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby. All hives are hosted by local residents and community gardens. When we harvest, we maintain the neighbourhood-level origin of the honey in each jar. With a CSA share from EastVan Bees, you can taste how Urban Honey changes throughout the year. Different flowers and locations around the city give each batch of Urban Honey a unique flavor. It’s sort of like the idea of terroir in wine production – the characteristic taste and flavor imparted on a wine from the growing conditions in which it was produced - but with our neighbourhood-specific honey, you get to experience the unique sweet-side of our local areas.

This is a truly artisanal honey.

The 2017 CSA pickups will be once a month on the 2nd  Wednesday of the month. September through December (4 pickups) pickup point will be at Luppolo Brewery 1123 Venables St,  East Vancouver between 5-6 (although we can work out alternate arrangements)
