Quite by accident, some beekeepers stopped by one day and asked us if we'd be willing to let them winter their bees on our property. In exchange, the beekeepers offered 4 gallons of honey (that's a lot of honey for a single family). That Spring and Summer, the bees were transported off our property to orchards in the local area and returned late in Autumn. Again, in exchange, we received four gallons of honey. Now, we had a lot of honey!
At dinner one evening someone said, "Let's sell the honey... We'll call the company, 'Spease Bees Honey Company.'" The name stuck, we developed a label and it took off from there.
Local Honey for Local Good
Bees work hard to benefit and protect their hive. Everything they do has some benefit to their hive - their community. Spease Bees Honey Company believes we should do the same. We want to make our community a better place to live by helping improve the literacy of local children. As a result, a portion of our profits are donated to the Laguna Sunrise Rotary Foundation where that money will be used to purchase dictionaries for 3rd graders, fund playwriting workshops for 4th graders and support the Reading Buddies program.
