Hahahaha! What an awesome story. All these slow-food, buy-locally, damned-the-food-scientists types have to be crying in their home-brewed-with-organically-grown-hops-in-antique-vats beer. Maybe they can throw their custom-made-and-artfully-curated axes and go destroy the cherry factory.

They would like me, or at least my food consumption, but I generally hate all activists, and especially ones going on about silly trends.

People pushing back against crappy fast food is a 'silly trend' now, really? The slow food movement is about nothing more then encouraging people to eat quality food from quality ingredients... The term activist does not necessitate acting like PETA.

Here here- and is a hallmark of many of the finest restaurants that many here tout.

And as beekeepers ourselves, I can say:

I am aware of the movement. I dislike self-styled "activists."

Meh. Most movement restaurants, be they "slow food," "modernist cuisine," "molecular gastronomy" or whatever are not so great. The whole Fart to Table movement provides, in my opinion, food that is not sufficiently worked. Just my opinion, of course.

I've got a buddy who has an apiary in San Francisco, and harvests around 80 quarts of honey a year (!). He lives up on Liberty Street, between Castro, Noe Valley, and Dolores Park.

San Francisco has well over 200 privately-owned apiaries in the city. Some of them jar their own honey while others combine theirs with others and sell them at such places as Bi Rite.

I absolutely love honey and it's always an item that I purchase when I travel abroad - it's a very unique, fun, and delicious memento of a vacation.

That's prep and cooking skills though, right?

Not necessarily. I think a lot of it has to do with approach. When you are beholden to a movement, in anything, you are limited to what you are able to do.
