According to Alexandra Danieli, Bernal Heights is more pure, more beautiful, and more wholesome than other places. Our higher quality inputs yield higher quality output — in this case, better honey.
Danieli doesn’t put it quite that way, but Bernalwood is quite confident that’s what she meant:
Perhaps motivated by a drive to prop up the bee populations decimated by colony collapse disorder, beekeeping has become popular in cities worldwide. We visit one San Francisco beekeeper who keeps her hive in a Bernal Heights backyard where she escapes once a week to check on her colony. For Alexandra Danieli, beekeeping is part meditation and part fascination with a magical world of GPS, honing pheromones and group intelligence.
