Who We Are
Welcome to our store! We're the Mullins Family, and we're so glad you're shopping with us!
We started BeeGreatLocal.com because we found it hard to find local, quality honey from small beekeepers that we trusted, especially online. We wanted honey in containers that were easy to open and not spill or break! We also wanted to be environmentally friendly, so all our containers are recyclable, and we even use recycled packing material for shipping. We use reusable paper sacks for home deliveries.
Most importantly, we wanted it delivered to the house the next day or sooner. So, we offer same day or next day delivery and free shipping outside the Fort Wayne area.
There's a lot we don't like about honey at the big stores:
*It's heated (That's how they get it to flow through their bottling machines, but it really affects the taste and destroys the enzymes)
*It's filtered (This removes the pollen, propolis, and other hive components. They remove the healthiest ingredients from the honey!)
*The big guys combine so many different types of honey that it loses it's local flavor and quality (Every batch of our honey tastes different based on the time of year it's harvested and the growing season for wildflowers).
Lots of honey isn't even honey. Look at the ingredients. It's all corn syrup! What the heck is honey sauce!?
Finally, we love our bees and do everything we can to take care of them. Imagine our surprise when we learned that Burt's Bees is owned by Clorox!
