We became beekeepers to help with the rapid decline in our pollinator population. Commercial kept bee colonies decreased last year (2019) by 40%. Our environmental hobby has turned into a family scientific exploration generating a lot of honey. We harvest a little honey from our hives with love.
The benefits of local honey can outweigh the ease and cost of buying honey processed cheaply in a manufacturing plant and sold in a grocery store. From minimizing seasonal allergies to supporting local wildlife, the higher price is worth it. Plus, honey lasts forever, so it's a great investment in your family's future health.
