The Short Story
Pat Harrison, the owner and beekeeper, graduated from Bergen Community College and went on to get a BS in Environmental Science from Ramapo College. Growing up in Dumont NJ Pat earned the rank of Eagle Scout while always having a love for the nature world. During Pat’s time in school that love for the natural world developed into an obsession with honeybees and agriculture.
Not wanting to wait for the government to make sweeping and meaningful environmental change and action, Pat founded HarBee Beekeeping. HarBee is built on the beliefs that 1) we need that start to grow food in our urban and suburban areas 2) We need to do it in a way that is environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.
Thought of the day
Imagine someone in the future compares the Great Generation, who was truly great and answered to call to stop the Germans and Japanese in WW2, with the current generations, that may not leave the water and air clean and the oceans and skies habitable.
