Ballard Bee Company

October 5, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Ballard Bee Company is an urban pollination company in Seattle, comprised of about 50 hives. Because Seattle limits the number of hives a resident can have their yard, Ballard contracts with dozens of individuals who volunteer to host hives in exchange for a couple bottles of glorious local honey each year. The end product is then sold to nearby restaurants and boutiques. A great interview with founder Corky Luster on Seattlest. (via mister crew)

The Nogg Chicken Coop

October 4, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The Nogg is a modern chicken coop designed by Matthew Hayward.

The nogg transcends ideas of what a chicken house usually looks like. It is designed to encourage domestic farming while adding a touch of playful elegance.

Engineered and crafted by hand in the UK the nogg is made from strong cedar wood which is fresh scented and naturally antibacterial. Stainless steel trimming, locks & fasteners and the elevated glass dome gives the nogg a contemporary feel and is reassuringly safe and durable.
