Help Save the Honey Bees by Celebrating National Honey Month

It’s September, which means it’s National Honey Month and the third year of our Honey Saves Hives program! So, what’s the buzz? Protecting honey bees has become increasingly important as these pollinators are crucial to maintaining the health of our ecosystem. Not only do they produce the all-natural honey we enjoy, but honey bees pollinate more than a third of the foods we eat, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.

To celebrate National Honey Month, we’ve partnered with Brandi Milloy, a food reporter, mother, and lifestyle expert, and Joshua Snyder, a father, baker and meal planner. Together, they’re helping to spread the word about how we can all help save hives, including the easiest way - purchasing honey and made-with-honey products!

We’ve also partnered with brands that share our common goal of supporting honey bees. Try one of their made-with-honey products and visit to learn more about how you can help honey bees.

The brand continues to join forces with the National Honey Board to help protect honey bees, as honey adds a touch of sweetness to their products and honey bees are responsible for pollinating almonds, the primary ingredient in their almond butter!
