The Bee Shed
The Bee Shed is a Rochester-based company dedicated to educating the public about the importance of pollination as it relates to sustainable food production, mentorship of beekeepers, and education of the public about the importance of bees.
They believe native food sources are the best food sources. All of their yards are adjacent to native prairie wildflower sites or sizeable acreages of woodlands. They do not rely on clover, sunflower, safflower, soybean, canola or other agricultural plantings for nectar or pollen production. Native flowers and wooded lots provide a wide variety of nectar and pollen sources that are available across the entire growing season. Not only does this approach protect the honeybees from a shortage of forage throughout the season, it provides them with a diverse diet of high quality foods.
We were commissioned by Chris and John to create packaging for their unique flavors: Wildflower, Spring, Midsummer, and Autumn. This included a refreshed look to all their labels and a three pack sampler gift pack for small grocer’s in SE Minnesota.
