State Street Honey provides the San Francisco Bay Area with local raw honey from chemical free, self-sustainable apiaries. We breed local queens, nucleus (nuc) colonies, offer beekeeping instruction, adopt-a-hive programs, and various products like 100% beeswax candles, fresh pollen, homemade soaps.




the central and most important part of an object, movement, or group, forming the basis for its activity and growth.

as the definition implies, The nucleus colony - or nuc - is the heart of my apiary.  through the wisdom of beekeepers before me, I've adopted a self-sustaining system of rearing new queens and colonies from my most vigorous stock. While tending to the production colonies (those used to harvest honey) throughout the beekeeping season, I CONCURRENTLY raise new queens to grow NUC colonies.

The nuc system helps allow for the exclusion of any sort of chemical treatment, and is augmented by my nature-based systematic approach, implementing techniques such as brood breaks, allowing for swarms, and selecting the most hearty genes to perpetuate only the most desirable stock.

Losing a colony is almost a certainty in today's world of beekeeping, but an apiary which has reserves to pull from can not only survive, but thrive.
