The Problem

First, the not-so-sweet news: the decline of powerhouse pollinators like bees leads to increased costs and reduced yields for farmers. That’s because up to 80% of US crops are dependent on honey bee pollination for reproduction. As more land is converted to industrial agriculture, wild bees lose their homes and are sickened by pesticides that are sprayed on crops and reach bees unintentionally.

Our Food Fix

The spoonful of honey in your tea or breakfast bowl has a serious impact. Made by bees pollinating plants in upstate NY, this raw honey helps nourish the local ecosystem. When bees contribute to the pollination of fruits and veggies, yields of these plants are estimated to grow by 70%. More pollinators means more produce. So go ahead and add something sweet to your day; your jar of honey has long lasting impacts on the fields and farmers around you.
