Buzz on over to one of our restaurants this week – Founding Farmers DC, Farmers Fishers Bakers, and Farmers & Distillers – for a taste of the Bee’s Knees. This delicious, Prohibition-era cocktail is being served as part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness and funds to support honey bees and other pollinators.
Between September 25th and October 1st, we are joining other restaurants and bars across the country in this year’s Bee’s Knees Week. Sponsored by Liquor.com and Barr Hill Gin, Bee’s Knees Week brings attention to the honey bee, not just for the tasty honey they provide for our drinks and food, but for their important role in our food supply and its biodiversity.
Join us for a Bee’s Knees and tell your friends and families (#DRINKBEESKNEES) all about the importance of our honey bees and other pollinators, and ways we can all celebrate and protect them this week and every week.
Farmers Restaurant Group will be donating a portion of our proceeds from the sales of this cocktail to the Pollinator Partnership, whose mission is to promote the health of pollinators through conservation, education, and research.
Bee’s Knees Week is just one piece of our ongoing efforts to protect the honey bee and the future of our food supply. We support research on honey bees at our urban apiary at George Washington University. We also support other education efforts, such as our partnership with Sweet Virginia, which works to inspire and educate children about honey bees.
