Forget pork, it’s honey season at the White House and how sweet it is.

My fiancé’s family visited D.C. this Saturday and snapped a few photos of the hive which, as you can see, is towering with 3 honey supers up top.

    White house hive…How do they even open it up? Seems crazy, but it looks like they need a ladder to do it. Hmmmm

    There is a video showing the White House Carpenter Charlie Brandt opening the hive (using a ladder) and taking out the honey for the Chefs to use.
