In partnership with Marshall’s Farm, Executive Chef Bruno Tison of The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa will be installing honey beehives on the resort’s perimeter in order to help support the Valley’s bee population, which has decreased in number by 90 percent since the 1980s. Hotel honey will be used in soups, salad dressings, pastries, ice cream and showcased on the Michelin-starred Santé menu.

When the beehives mature they will each house up to 50,000 bees and are estimated to produce approximately 250 pounds of honey.
