OH HONEY Union Depot is home to five rooftop beehives. These hives help support the endangered honeybee community while producing a healthy and delicious treat. BEE LINE HONEY: UNIQUE IN EVERY WAY The color and flavor of the honey collected from the Bee Line bees varies from year to year and depends on the source of the nectar. Our bees find their food along the Mississippi River Valley and in parks and gardens around the city. Typically, the light color and sweet spicy flavor found in Bee Line honey is a result of nectar collected from Basswood trees, which are plentiful in urban environments. Other plants that influence the color and flavor include dandelion, loosetrife, wild rose and thistle. Because Bee Line Honey contains pollen gathered locally, it has the added benefit of alleviating seasonal allergies. Union Depot is proud to be the home for such amazing tenants. Their contributions are immeasurable and their offering is so sweet. You can purchase Bee Line Honey at the Union Depot Management Office, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., located at 214 4th Street East, Suite 300, Saint Paul, MN, 55101. OUR BEEKEEPER Union Depot has partnered with Mademoiselle Miel, a Saint Paul beekeeper and chocolatier, to oversee our beehives and and honey production, including bottling. Mademoiselle Miel was awarded Dessert Professional Magazine’s Top Ten Chocolatiers in 2014.
