About

Today, Love A Bee is a small business selling curated honey at farmers markets in the Bay area, selected retailers, and online here.

When you buy from Love A Bee, you will notice that our entire focus is on presenting the inherent beauty of the product, in its raw form, in its pure form. Pure honey is the starting point for everything we do. 

Our prices honor the true cost of production. In return, you get to enjoy our curated, delicious and 100% natural honeys, and the knowledge that we also pay our beekeepers a fair price. Supporting good beekeepers and sustainable beekeeping is why we came into existence!

In the future, we want to train young beekeepers and sponsor school garden programs. This program will be slow and deliberate, and over time will promote great insight into how a good ecosystem works and how bees are pivotal to its success.

Our Founder

Founder and CEO, Louise Derrick comes from an agricultural background and brings with her skills as an artist and designer, and a determination
not to cloak our products behind claims that cannot be substantiated.

Love A Bee began when Louise became involved in promoting several honey businesses and became aware of some of the dilemmas the industry is facing. Since 2013, Louise has spent every waking moment painstakingly researching major issues in beekeeping, such as Colony Collapse Disorder, interviewing and educating consumers, and working alongside beekeepers, scientists, and farmers to create a business that honors the value of honey, the value of beekeepers, commercial and sideline, and the value of consumers' experience in relation to bees and honey. 

Apart from working with some of the best local beekeepers, she even keeps her own hives! She has used the knowledge she has gained to develop Love A Bee, a business that provides high quality honey products, and that is now a proud part of sustainable beekeeping and a sustainable food supply.
