Toronto's landmark Fairmont Royal York Hotel found an incredibly sweet way for their restaurant diners to enjoy local food -- they harvest their honey straight from their very own rooftop.

The 14-story high rooftop of the Fairmont Royal York has over 10,000 bees in three of their very own beehives, The V.I.Bee Suite, Honey Moon Suite and The Royal Sweet.

"You can’t find a supplier much closer than your own roof. Our colonies deliver irresistible honey for our guests, while promoting our ecological commitment to bee culture,"
says Executive Chef David Garcelon.

Urban beekeeping is expected to move to New Brunswick's Fairmont Algonquin in St. Andrews, and, not surprisingly, the green-loving city of Vancouver at The Fairmont Waterfront. Stats for Urban Beekeeping Trending: Older & Mild
