of profits donated to Save The Bees
It isn’t an overstatement that small beekeepers and their colonies are the key to healthy ecosystems into the future. Yet, low price and poor-quality honey varieties being sold by supermarkets are threatening that. Upon learning about the disappearing bee population, NSW’s Ana and Sven jumped into rescuing hives that would otherwise have been exterminated, and soon enough the honey began to pour in.
Amber Drop Honey is built on passion for sustainable beekeeping, helping to support local beekeepers and the growth of the bee population by giving 5% of profits to Save the Bees Australia. Just as traditional farming industries are being dissolved into larger commercial operations, so are beehives. By focusing on hive rescue and educating new generations of ethical beekeepers through their workshops and training facilities, Amber Drop Honey aims to instill a respect for bees in local communities.
Dreamstarter’s crowdfunding has allowed Amber Drop Honey to establish a portable building on their farm to spread their passion for ethical beekeeping. The establishment will serve as a communal beekeeping hub with a training, extracting and bottling facility.
Since the business began two years ago, it has rescued over 130 bee colonies and has grown from a casual market stall to attending 10 markets a month and being stocked by 25 stores.
