In Zoetermeer, a number of local beekeepers are at work with their own beehives spread across the city. The honey bees fly out to green places to drink their fill of sweet nectar. The beekeepers use these bees to make pots of gold: often hand-cranked honey of Zoetermeer origin. See below where you can go for real Zoetermeer honey.

    Beekeeping Nature Garden Zoetermeer

    The honeybees of Beekeeping Nature Garden Zoetermeer live in areas such as the Balijbos. Here they feed on nectar from Zoetermeer flowers and then return to the beehives in the Nature Garden. You can buy the pots of honey from this beekeeper at Stadsboerderij Balijhoeve in Rokkeveen, among others.

    Honey from the Zoetermeer region

    Would you prefer to buy local honey, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be from Zoetermeer? Then you can go to Farm ‘t Geertje, Landwinkel Sonneveld or vegetable farm Van der Kooij for local honey. Or choose honey from the neighboring municipality of Berkel en Rodenrijs with honey from Berkselse bees.
