Why We Care

Beekeeping has become important as food production worldwide has changed. With the rise of monocrops and decrease in biodiversity, crop pollination has become more challenging. With a lack of biodiversity, there aren’t as many pollinating animals such as bees. Pollination isn’t possible without those animals, wind or water that carries the pollen from plant to plant. Out of all the crops grown around the world, 80% require pollination by animals. Read more about pollination here

Honey is the third-most-faked food in the world, behind milk and olive oil, according to compliance management company Decernis.  Honey imported from overseas is often adulterated—either by having sugars added to it or by being cleaned, heated, or filtered—and then is blended with small amounts of true honey until the sticky substance is uniform.  This isn’t necessarily an issue of food safety; adulterated honey isn’t typically dangerous to eat. But it does mean that customers are paying top dollar for “raw” or “local” honey with purported health benefits that could in fact be nothing more than a mix of different sugars.   Mission Beekeeping takes pride in knowing where our honey comes from and the management practices that make it a high quality product. 

 We care not only about bees on a global level, but the bees in our own apiaries. To read more about our business practices and other frequently asked questions, click here
