Project Honey Bees consists of savvy bee lovers who just like you are terrified and outraged by the fact that honey bees are slowly going extinct. We all want to help our yummy honey producing fuzzy friends stay alive and the current statistics are not looking well. We are here to be the change! Our main mission is to increase the honey bee population, spread awareness of the species, and support of local bee farmers. 

Hi there! My name is Greta Schmidt an environmental scientist and together with my husband Bentley an agricultural engineer (both UC Davis Alumni) we wanted to thank you for checking out our store and the mission!

We opened Project Honey Bees with a huge mission to repopulate the shrinking number of honeybees and supporting the local beekeepers! Just like Winnie the Pooh we love honey! Needless to say, we were both devastated to find out how endangered honeybees are! Can you imagine not having honey on your table? Not only that, but bees pollinate 1/3 of all crops! Without them our choice of veggies and meats would be limited. Save The Bees!

We decided to provide adorable bee-themed merchandise and create a positive impact by giving our customers a bee they can personally adopt! The bees provided are from UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center and other partnered organizations, and are working really hard to pollinate our veggies and provide us with sweet and amazing honey!

University of California Davis is the World's Top 1 Agricultural Research Institution, with a mutual goal of saving and supporting the endangered local population of honey bees, who also provides us with the bee adoption program!

Proceeds of each purchase will be donated to honey.ucdavis.edu and will contribute to university bee research, creation of new hives, repopulation of bees, education of communities, long term solutions to the declining population of bees and more! Learn more about our partners
