At Bee Green we search for balance, not only in the ecosystem that our bees thrive in, but in the product they dedicate their lives to produce. Our honey is a journey of reuse, readapt, and how that gets presented to the world is as important as the environment we protect.
We give $1.00 back for each jar returned
Our products are shipped in 100% Paper Materials and eco-friendly bubble wrap.
Our bottles consist of glass with engraved wood tops
We use EcoTensil compostable utensils for honey sampling
Our focus is on providing the highest quality artisanal 100% raw honey to the world.
We believe in presentation and design and have concentrated our efforts into developing a jar that would incase the nectar of nature that our bees work so hard to produce.
We want our brand to reflect what the honeybee means to the world and how design can reach the public consumer by reminding all of us to bee kind, bee green and bee more environmentally aware. The decline in the honey bee has created an environmental crisis that is affecting farms, their produce, and in turn is jeopardizing the foods we eat, and ultimately our health.
What’s all the buzz about? Well, that’s just the sound of a bee’s wings beating 11,400 times per minute.
Our hives are located in Lucerne Valley, CA, just north down facing the side of Big Bear in the high plains of Southern California`s desert basin. With majestic views of the surrounding mountains, and the endless fields of alfalfa, our bees enjoy the calm surroundings and pleasant scenery.
Each of our hives consists between 30,000 to 60,000 bees that can visit up to 10,000 flowers a day. A hive will make two to three times more honey than it needs to survive, leaving plenty of surpluses for harvest. With each hive producing almost 100 lb. of honey a year, there is plenty of honey to share with all of our fans.
HOW TO HELP SAVE THE BEES
It’s hard to resist bees. The most complex and sophisticated of insects, they live in well-organised social structures, defend themselves and their queens to death, and cluster together to keep warm throughout the winter.
In worrying decline due to intensive farming practices, they are invaluable workers, pollinating 85% of our food. Things you can do to help our bees is to plant bee friendly habitats like wildflowers, fruits and herbs. Avoid the use of chemicals and pesticides. Support local beekeepers by purchasing their honey and other bee products. Spread the word, sharing what you know about bees and why they are so important to our survival.
