Since I was a little girl, I have had a passion for honey bees. I remember spending long Sunday afternoons with my Great uncle and his bees,
My science projects in elementary school about bee colonies, lifecycle of the bees and so on.
I have since traveled the world and have lived abroad for the past 13 years. While away, I lived with my husband's grandmother who sourced all her food from her garden and animals she raised. She never used or uses processed sugar or food. In place of sugar, she uses local raw honey. She uses honey not only to sweeten her teas but for medicinal purposes as well. She will be 93 years old this year.
My experience living with her sparked my interests in sourcing what we consume from the bounties of the earth.
On our return to the United States, it was my goal to get back to nature and to spread the word of healthy eating and how we can aid our bodies with raw, unprocessed, non-gmo foods.
Living in the beautiful sunny state of Florida, where it's always summer, we are fortunate to have flowers blossoming year-round. I decided to get back to my love from childhood and further educate myself on Florida's bees and the different types of honey sourced from here.
An opportunity arouse where I was able to take over Florida's Finest Raw Honey in October 2017.
I am currently working closely with sustainable Floridian family owned and operated apiaries, bringing our consumers the best quality raw honey from the hive to the kitchen table.
I am continuing on my journey to learn beekeeping, as well as spreading the word of healthy lifestyle choices and how we can make small changes to our environments to help keep our bees and other pollinators healthy, happy and alive.
I am a member of the Broward County Beekeepers Association and committed to the preservation of the bee population. A portion of each sale is donated to the Planet Bee Foundation. It is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to educate children about honey bees and the importance they have in our world.
