What’s all the buzz?
Honey bee populations worldwide are declining under the combined impact of disease, pesticides, climate change, and habitat loss. This poses a huge threat to human food security.
Bees pollinate roughly one-third of our crops, including fruit trees, berries, vegetables, and even alfalfa. Approximately 5% of plant species in nature rely critically on these creatures, while bees ignore nearly half of all plants.
A world without bees could struggle to sustain the global human population of 7 billion people. Still, we believe that experiential learning opportunities are an empowering long-term solution to a balanced ecosystem.
“In order to produce a kilogram of honey, a bee has to visit four million flowers and fly four times the distance around the planet.”
To support the declining population of pollinators, specifically the bee.
Raising public awareness and education about the plight of bees and other pollinators is critical to making a difference. We believe in sustainable beekeeping methods and take great care to keep our bees in an environmentally conscious manner, knowing that well-cared-for bees produce great honey.
