Bees are responsible for providing at least 30–50% of the world’s food supply. Our survival relies on these little pollinating powerhouses. In fact, studies show that if honeybees were to disappear, the human population could not exist for more than four years.

Bees are basically the hardest workers on the planet. Without them, we wouldn’t have fresh produce, flowers or our personal favorite, honey. But it’s not all sweetness and happy hives for the honeybee. A phenomenon has emerged called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), and it’s claiming the lives of bees in record numbers. CCD is likely caused by pesticides, mites and stress, and up to 42% of the earth’s bees have been wiped out.

We're going Local
Our pop-up apiary program brings awareness to a local level. Come sample products, see our glass-front bee hive and get educated by a local beekeeper on the importance of responsible beekeeping and community support.

What you can do
Watch our social media to see where we’ll pop up next. Buy local produce pollinated by local bees to support your local farmers and ecosystem.


We're Giving Back
We partner exclusively with humane beekeepers and apiaries that treat their bees like the royal treasures they are. We’ve also identified organizations that we are proud to support for their environmental efforts.

What you can do
Donate to organic beekeepers and bee health research organizations.

We're Educating
100% natural, bee-friendly honey is our gold standard. By proving the difference that pure honey makes (its health benefits, rich taste and environmental impact), we can create awareness and influence action.

What you can do
Support companies that support the honeybee. Do your research, read labels and vote with your dollars.


We're Gardening
Gardening is one of our favorite pastimes—second to making Blume Honey Water, of course. Our co-founder Michele has backyard hives in her vegetable and flower gardens, so you can see that our passion is personal.

What you can do
Avoid pesticides and plant healthy flower gardens to help feed your local bees and participate in our #beekindgarden contests.
