COX Printers Event Creates a Buzz About Bees, Local Businesses
LINDEN, NJ—After installing a rooftop honeybee farm a couple of years ago, COX Printers has been spreading the word about the importance of honeybees and their recent decline. For the past two years, COX owner Michael Kaufman has invited clients and local businesses to enjoy the sweet tasting honey at harvest time.
The second annual Honey Harvest and Cross Pollination Expo was held recently at COX Printers' manufacturing plant, and beekeepers from Bee Bold Apiaries demonstrated how honey is harvested from the hive. The educational experience was also a networking event. Each guest had the opportunity to meet representatives from a variety of local businesses.
