Bee Local

Bee Local Honey was created with the goal of becoming the most transparent, trusted and tasty honey company in the United States.  They both produce and also source the most sustainable, healthy and delicious honeys from across the country. Bee Local approved bee keepers do not feed their bees high fructose corn syrup and minimize their bees exposure to pesticides. Bee Local Honeys are never heated, treated, blended or ultra-filtered. The results of Bee Local Honey’s mission is honey that is flavorful, pollen rich and raw.  The honey is traceable from hive to jar.   

Bee Local Honey was founded by Damian Magista in 2011 after discovering that hives in different neighborhoods in his hometown of Portland, Oregon produce honey with a distinctive flavor. He recently added smoked honey to the line-up, producing a honey with a more intense and bold flavor profile.

I discovered Bee Local as I was looking for a salt to add to our marketplace.  It was close to Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, when we traditionally eat apples dipped in honey. That got the best of me and I decided to add Bee Local to the marketplace. I couldn’t be happier with the product. It is exactly the kind of product we look for at Julie’s Beet.
