Justin’s and the National Honey Board are partnering during National Honey Month to spotlight the important role honey bees play in our ecosystem and products.
Purchase Justin’s products to directly support bee health and research.
September is National Honey Month
The world needs DELICIOUS – and DELICIOUS needs bees. Honey bees are responsible for more than 35% of the foods we eat and they pollinate more than 90 different crops, including almonds and honey – two of our favorite foods here at Justin’s. This all means that our meals would be pretty sad without bees. So, next time you’re sitting down for dinner, give a bee a hug.
You see, when you buy Justin’s products, you’re supporting beekeepers and their efforts to keep honey bees healthy. You’re also strengthening the connection between our pollinators and our planet’s entire ecosystem.
At Justin’s, we’ve got a long track record of supporting honey bees.
We’ve joined forces with national, state and local organizations working to protect pollinators through habitat conservation and expansion, sustainable agriculture, research and education.
Honey Bee Facts
1/12 of a Teaspoon
On average, a honey bee hive will produce 60 lbs. of honey a year, with each bee producing only a 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in their lifetime!
There are more than 20,000 different species of bees in the world, but only seven recognized species of honey bees. These amazing insects are distinguished by a secondary stomach called a honey sac, and in their ability to make and store honey.
Honey bees are chemists, naturally converting nectar from flowers into the honey. And, they do it in the most efficient factory in the world…the beehive!
Honey. Mother Nature’s Sweetener.
Straight from the flower to the bee to Justin’s Honey Almond Butter and Honey Peanut Butter. Using honey is the most natural thing we can do. Honey delivers our Naturally Delicious Nut Butters—a sweetness that’s derived purely from the flowers where bees forage. Plus, honey has all-natural minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and prebiotics.
Honey truly is Mother Nature’s sweetener, from the flower to the hive to our products. We love using it in our products and supporting beekeepers and honey bee health research.
