Together we can bee better

Our mission is much greater than honey. It’s about protecting those who share the honey with us – the bees. By partnering with the best people in honey health, pollination and backyard beekeeping, we’re able to give back to those who give us nature’s greatest gift.

Beyond the bee

Besides honey, pollination is the greatest gift bees give. That’s why a portion of all proceeds from every bottle goes toward supporting PACE, who promote, protect and prolong pollination. See how we’re raising awareness through conservation and education. Learn more about the PACE initiative.
