Preservation Honeybee

It's a little known fact that Northampton Honey's original name was Preservation Honeybee.  It's still the name we have on file with the state of MA as a DBA.  It's on our business checks if we ever need to pay you for something but in the end Northampton Honey made more sense to us. 

The reason we originally were called Preservation Honeybee was that we want to support land conservation with our honey operation.  Western MA is a beautiful place for many reasons, but the land is chief amongst them.  I am often astonished how sprawly other places are, the land chewed up for nothing but two acre lots and endless Jiffy Lubes. We're in love with the land and want to keep it beautiful for all time.

We've kept at it and now expect to be keeping bees on city conservation land that the Kestrel Trust holds the permanent conservation restriction to . We're going to give a portion of our proceeds from bees kept on Trust to the Trust to further invest in land conservation here in Western MA. We think this is how business should operate, we think people should give back.
