Beezy Beez Urban Bee Farming
For seven years, Igor Yakovlev made a living as an urban beekeeper selling his honey at local farmer’s markets and independent stores in New York and New Jersey.
“I got into the business because I was always interested in honeybees and helping people and the environment,” he says, noting that, “seventy-percent of our ecosystem is pollinated by honeybees” and touting the health benefits of honey.
In recent years, Yakovlev, like many, began hearing about the medicinal properties of Botanical Extract.
