Honey is truly a remarkable substance, made even more extraordinary by the process with which it is made. The blend of sugar, trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids sets honey aside from the other generic sweeteners.

Honey beeswild and domesticperform about 80 percent of all pollination worldwide. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day. Grains are primarily pollinated by the wind, but fruits, nuts and vegetables are pollinated by bees. Seventy out of the top 100 human food cropswhich supply about 90 percent of the world’s nutritionare pollinated by bees.

We are trying to contribute to educating the public about the importance of honey bees and the easiest way to help save the bees is:

1. Plant organic/BEE against the use of pesticides

2. Support your local bee keepers (they are the ones raising and maintaining the hives, as well as harvesting the honey. Buying honey directly from them helps the good work keep going! We support them by only buying their raw local honey to make our slushies.
