Honey Harvest by Kinfolk

Our good friends at Kinfolk release their newest shoot titled “Honey Harvest” featuring some beekeeping. A pretty interesting piece that really connects the animal to our everyday life, I think a lot of the time we forget where our food actually comes from and how it gets to our plate so it’s nice to see this connection. Also this piece brings into perspective friendships and the power of sharing food with our loved ones, even more so …
