About Bee Local

Founded in 2011 by Damian Magista after discovering honey from hives in various urban neighborhoods he placed in his hometown of Portland, Oregon have completely different flavor profiles, colors, and textures. Bee Local has since become a national brand, changing the face of honey production and sourcing. 
Unbeknownst to even the most savvy of food lovers, the world of bees, beekeeping and honey is in crisis. Despite what that cute little honey bear wants to tell you, not all honey is created equal. Practices such as “honey laundering,” predatory purchasing, and harsh conventional/commercial beekeeping are not only contributing to colony collapse disorder, but they are pushing smaller family beekeepers out of business, creating honey monopolies, and resulting in inferior, flavorless, and unhealthy honey on grocery store shelves across America.

"It’s a watershed moment in the world of honey. But retailers, chefs, food processors, and consumers have the chance to make a difference."

That’s where Bee Local comes in. Our goal is to become the most trusted, transparent and tasty honey company in America – both producing and sourcing only the most sustainable, healthy and uniquely delicious honeys in the country – from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, to the Austin city limits, to the borough of Brooklyn.
