"On behalf of everyone at EB5 Capital, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your help in the planning of our company president's birthday celebration.... She was completely thrilled with the unique and thoughtful honey-tasting table that you arranged, and the beautiful gift basket that you prepared. After you left, everyone kept admiring your decorations, and we continued our discussion about bees and honey. Each and every one of us had such a great time tasting the different combinations and pairings of the wide variety of fruits, nuts, honeys, cheeses, and crackers that you arranged. Our president truly enjoyed the experience, as did everyone on the EB5 Capital and Phillips Realty team. Thank you so much for making Angela's birthday celebration such an enjoyable and memorable experience."

Best Regards,
Lynn

"Thank you, and thank Chris so much for coming and speaking with us on Sunday! It was truly enjoyable to listen to him; I think we would have been happy peppering him with questions for another hour.... I'm sure that everyone who attended learned something fascinating to pass along, and interest in beekeeping certainly spiked during the evening. I hope everyone shares good things about Bee America with others - I know I will!"

Why Choose Us?

Bee America is a small, family-run apiary that believes in local, sustainable beekeeping. We want to help ensure a bright future for honey bees given their struggles to survive in an environment challenged by the over-use of pesticides, monoculture crops, diseases and pests, extremes in climate change. We passionately love bees and honey and want to share our knowledge of and enthusiasm with all things "bee" with you!

Honey is a special gift from nature that is best enjoyed if it can be appreciated for the truly amazing food it is - no other food comes close to its utter perfection. It is the essence of a flower, distilled into an edible feast for the senses.
