BENTONVILLE, Ark — Crystal Bridges will now be able to harvest its own honey.

In 2018, Crystal Bridges built two Langstroth hives along the Art Trail at Crystal Bridges, which brought between 40,000 and 80,000 bees to the area.

The bees are great pollinators for the local agricultural industry and the flora and fauna on the Crystal Bridges Trail.

Crystal Bridges’ museum restaurant, Eleven, and Coffee Bar will use honey produced by the bees.

Crystal Bridges Resident Beekeeper, Michael Sanchez Vazquez, shared a professional tip with honey-lovers.

“Most honey consumers think crystallized honey is bad honey, but it’s the opposite! The faster the honey crystallizes, the better. Take any crystallized jars of honey you have, place them in the middle of a pot filled with water, and bring the stove temp to right before boiling point. Ta-da! The honey is like new!”
