Mission Statement Bee

Sustainable Beekeeping

We are a nonprofit organization that trains, supports, and provides bees and equipment at no cost to partner beekeepers in economically distressed Appalachian communities.

We help our partners produce natural honey (and income) in the “greenest” possible way. Our bees gather pollen and nectar from nearby forests and fields, not agricultural crops sprayed with pesticides. ABC partners practice natural beekeeping, using no synthetic chemicals or antibiotics. So, our honey is as pure as it can be.

Our Products

We created the ABC Honey website with the primary goal to sell the honey of our partner beekeepers. We also realized it would be a perfect opportunity to showcase the products of other Appalachian artisans and organizations.

APPALACHIAN HEADWATERS

The Appalachian Beekeeping Collective is a project of Appalachian Headwaters, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Headwaters’ primary focus is on ecological restoration and environmental education. Headwaters creates and supports a wide range of environmental programs in addition to the Appalachian Beekeeping Collective.

FEATURED BEEKEEPERS

Each year, Appalachian Headwaters trains and supports a class of new beekeepers.
