The above slogan is the cornerstone of our beekeeping. First and foremost, our apiary is an act of appreciation for the honeybee. Not only would there be no Boston Honey Company without the triumph of the honeybee, but there are also easier ways to make a living than the often tricky and hard industry of apiculture. Our apiary is worked with care and passion for honeybees and all that they produce. Bees are fantastic creatures that have evolved to be crucial elements of nature and our food supply. The lives and functions of bees are extraordinary, giving us appreciative pause.
So before we can put care into our honey, candles, pollen, and skin care products, we have to put care into our bees. Our reverence and attention is in-line with the best of animal husbandry.
Do not forget that as insects, bees are vital animals. They are not disposable due to number, or unimportant due to size! These attributes make them the powerful force that they are. We do not employ the use of harmful practices or treatments. Our organic methodology, sustainable actions, and intense focus on each individual colony, creates plenty of work; but work which we are glad to undertake.
As a family business and one so innately connected to the land, we are the epitome of 'local'. We take great pride in this fact, and take it very seriously.
The crops our bees pollinate are the fruit and produce of your spring, summer, fall, and winter cellar. The foods of the local farms that you consume are tethered right to us, especially the savory honey we provide. We care about their quality, the quality of your health, and the satisfaction those services bring you.
Our honey is not just from the Boston region, but about it. In our honey, you taste the flowers, crops and landscapes of Massachusetts. These are the areas we all live and thrive in; they deserve respect and appreciation from all of us.
As much as we run a business, we pay homage to the land and everything on it. We support and strive to protect open space and flora in our state. There has been much habitat loss from population and development needs in our state, but we seek to see all new and remaining open space prosper and flourish. Our honey is pure, raw, high quality, and local. We do not deviate from this. We are truly grateful to the honeybee and for all that it gives!
