Sweet Pure Honey Heads To Vancouver

As I sit and type, my heart races realizing in 2 days I will get on a plane and fly to a new city. Sheldon and I head to Vancouver on our second trip alone together in 15 years!

This trip comes at a time when we are looking towards our future, with the Alberta economy drastically changing we have been forced to push ourselves and our business in new directions.  We are heading to les amis du FROMAGE http://buycheese.com to do some Canadian No, 1 Raw white honey tastings, including our specialty red clover flow hive honey.

As we look to expand in British Columbia this year, we were inspired to create new organic products.  Moving towards cleaner and greener ingredients, while remaining committed to affordable products and sustainable practices. As founding supporters of Flow Hive https://www.honeyflow.com Sweet Pure Honey is investing in more Flow Hives this year. This will allow us to bring our clients specialty organic honey while moving us in a sustainable direction.

The drastic honey price fluctuations seen in the market globally, are especially taxing when you are a small producer.  We have always envisioned providing pure honey to our loyal clients who care where their food is coming from.  We are here today because people choose to support our family bee farm.

I just got the video of our 2016 Chamber Of Commerce Business Ethics Award, you can watch it here https://vimeo.com/204713331 What an amazing evening, I will never forget that night!  To be acknowledged for exhibiting the 8 business code of practices right now is an honor, one I strive to maintain.

What started as a dream to build a better life for our family has turned into a reality. We still work each day to provide for our 3 children, and now we see the fruits of our labor. As our children move into teenage years we remain focused on creating a strong family tie that will bind us over the years to follow. 

Thank you to each and every one of you who share our story, support our small business and believe in our dream!  I am beyond grateful for the life I live and appreciate the privilege to be a stay at home mom while working from home.

Sweet Pure Honey finds new ways to give back to the local community

I had the privilege of speaking at my local woman's shelter yesterday.  This time of year I normally make cash donations to all my favorite organizations in the Hat.  With my local market sales decreasing 60% I have been forced to find new and inventive ways to give back to the community that has literally supported my dreams.  I chose to give my time, supplies and expertise and empower the woman to create their own organic soap for their family and loved ones.  You can read about here http://chattelevision.ca/__news/finding-new-ways-to-give-back/   or watch the video http://chattelevision.ca/video/dec-13-womans-shelter-donations/

What I learned is the greatest gift I can give to other woman is to empower and teach what I have personally learned.  

We all walked out of that room a little lighter and taller!

TONI Daley shout out on our Canada No.1 Raw White Honey

So Toni Daley did a product review of our Sweet Pure Honey Canada No.1 Raw White Honey along with her hubby Drew.  "The cadilac of honey!" Drew exclaimed.  

The video above is just a short clip of Toni's original video post. Well who knew how many US followers Toni had because all the orders that came in are from the US!

We offered anyone typing Toni Daley in the message box 25% off their honey purchase. I wanted to extend that deal to all of my followers. So while we scramble to get prior notice from FDA for all these US orders, anyone wanting to try a jar of our Canada No.1 Raw White Honey now is your chance! Offer good on our Canada No.1 Raw White Honey jars only (pails and soap packs already have 22% off our retail price for buying in bulk )

Thank you Toni and Drew, we appreciate the LOVE!!!! Stella & Sheldon
