A Sweet Partnership

The Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences and Eli’s

Our wildflower honey comes from the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS), one of the only urban agricultural high schools in the country located on a working farm. The student beekeepers at CHSAS maintain their own hives, harvest, and package the honey. For over 25 years, we have enjoyed a strong partnership with the school, providing job shadowing, mentor programs and internships. A portion of the proceeds from honey and honey dessert sales go toward college scholarships for deserving CHSAS high school seniors.
