Brent Wesley

CEO & Founder
Akron Honey Company


Wesley is often described as a pioneer of the urban landscape. After purchasing a vacant blighted city lot in 2013, he taught himself how to keep bees in ways that placed a focus on 'quality in processes'. He was only trying to improve his neighborhood, but soon was forced to start a company after countless people began requesting to buy his fresh and local urban honey. That's when Akron Honey was born.

Akron Honey has always demonstrated the responsibility of building better people and building better places by managing the intersection of entrepreneurship, community activism, urban agriculture, and activating grey spaces. With a central focus on natural foods & natural personal care, Akron Honey is becoming sweeter and sweeter every day.
