The Bee's Knees Package
In June 2010, The Fairmont San Francisco’s Executive Chef jW Foster, in partnership with Marshall’s Farm, installed honey beehives in the hotel’s culinary garden in order to help support the bee population, which has decreased in number by 90 percent since the 1980s. The rooftop apiary consists of four nascent beehives, now containing around 200,000 bees, who thoroughly enjoy living the suite life atop Nob Hill! The bees’ honey has been used by the hotel’s Laurel Court Restaurant & Bar in various desserts, dressings and afternoon tea service and now in the hotel’s own “Fairmont San Francisco Honey Saison” beer.
This past year, the beehives produced approximately 800 pounds of honey, which was served to hotel guests as part of The Fairmont’s commitment to offering local, organic, sustainable cuisine. The cultivation of honey beehives marks the latest step in The Fairmont San Francisco’s history of environmental stewardship. The landmark hotel has been part of the fabric of San Francisco for more than a century and it has maintained an enduring commitment to the local community and environment. Honey beehives can also be currently found at 18 other Fairmont Hotels & Resorts properties.
