Bee Brand's mission is to take away the burden beekeepers face in selling their honey, and in return, to allow consumers to always be able to buy honey from their local area with ease. Bee Brand hopes to teach consumers about the bees and show these consumers what they can do in order to support the bee population that is rapidly declining. We are committed to donating a portion of all sales to support bee and pollinator charities.
Why Local Honey?
If you could find a substance that could fight your allergies, heal your throat, and sweeten your coffee, would you long to consume it? Little do people know, but these are all proven effects of consuming raw, local honey. According to the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, local, raw honey has healing properties, helps with seasonal allergies, reduces the lifespan of colds, and is a natural antiseptic.
Most people assume that the honey they are buying in the supermarket is coming from a local source, so they think they are reaping all of these benefits. Little do they know that this honey is imported from overseas. After being harvested from mass beekeeping operations, this honey is heated and sent to America to be sold for the cheapest possible price. The pasteurization of honey effectively kills all of the healing antimicrobial properties of raw honey.
