About

Our passion for Honeybees started with a ride on a golf cart through a friends apiary in Piedmont, South Carolina on a sunny afternoon. We got the buzz and soon had our own hive. Our passion expanded with every season. Learning more about Honeybees and their role in the ecosystem. It wasn't long before we were looking for other ways to help people connect deeper with nature and find different ways to bring the wonders of nature to your daily routines with handcrafted and honeybee inspired products. It started with bottling our jars of raw, delicious honey and it soon grew into crafting beeswax candles. As we have grown our bee business, we have been able to find other ways to bring more bee inspired products. Beeswax and honey soaps in addition to other daily use products that everyone could love and appreciate. We have our signature brands with products made by our own honeybees.

We offer other handcrafted and honeybee inspired products in partnership with other small business, woman owned businesses, & veteran owned businesses. This is part of our passion to support other small businesses through product partnerships. These partnerships provide even more incredible honeybee inspired products to our customers. Our goal is to make to make it A PLACE FOR SWEET FINDS.

Each sales helps our apiary grow and allows us to continue to find homes for honeybees that take up residences in highly trafficked residential areas. It also allows us to continue to plant more native and indigenous trees and plants to increase the food sources for our pollinator communities.
