The Beekeeper

  • A Made By Hand profile of rooftop beekeeping in Brooklyn

  • Tags:

    Created by Brooklyn filmmaker Keith Ehrlich, the excellent web series Made By Hand profiles various pockets of artisinal activity around New York City. The latest episode departs from the black-and-white look of the first two episodes, with a beautifully shot, sun-soaked view of a rooftop beekeeping operation in Brooklyn.

    Local farmer Megan Paska has witnessed beekeeping as it morphed from an illegal (and possibly crazy) habit to a sustainable, community-supported skill. Mirroring beekeeping’s own ascendance, she found more than just a living: "This is the first time in my life when I’ve just felt absolutely on the right path."

    Catch up on the two previous episodes of Made by Hand, "The Knife Maker" and "The Distiller."
