Use honey. Protect bees. Help the planet.

It’s that simple. Honey Saves Hives is a national campaign designed to raise awareness about one of our most precious natural resources: honey bees.

Buy a jar of honey, purchase a product with honey in it or go to a restaurant that serves a killer hot honey chicken sandwich. It all helps support bees, beekeepers, our diverse food supply and our environment.

Celebrating Beekeeping: The Importance of Pollination

The importance of honey bee pollination for our food system cannot be understated. Roughly ⅓ of our diet depends on honey bees for pollination.

Celebrating Beekeeping: More Than a Job

More than just a job, the art and craft of beekeeping is a true labor of love. As stewards of the bees they keep, the honey industry works together to deliver honey at its best while having a positive impact on more than just the product they produce.

Partner Spotlight


Sprecher was Milwaukee’s first craft brewery founded after prohibition, and Randy Sprecher brought his love for European craft-style beers to the States after a time in Germany. Sprecher’s brand is on quality, craft ingredients that the entire family can drink, which is where Sprecher’s soda line came to be. Sweetened with honey, Sprecher’s famed Root Beer was the first, and it’s a product that makes the customer take a gulp and say “Oh it’s so good!” It hits differently than mass produced sodas, and it’s a high-quality Craft Root Beer due to the attention to detail, attention to craft and ingredients like locally-sourced honey.

Honey + Honey Bees = A Better World

Honey bees play a vital role in our global food supply, as they are responsible for producing the honey we enjoy and pollinating about 35% of the foods we eat.

Without honey bees, there’s no honey in your tea, avocado for your guacamole, watermelon at your picnic, nutmeg in your latte or apples to make a pie

September is National Honey Month!

What better way to celebrate honey and honey bees than to throw your own honey-themed party. We’ve partnered with Brandi Milloy to provide inspiration for a buzz-worthy gathering complete with food and decor. Learn more about honey, honey bees and pollination.
