Farm to table takes on a whole new meaning for coffee farmers.
GloryBee has been working with Coffee Farmers in Mexico since 2011, and have begun working with the NGO Food for Farmers to seek coffee farmers with export quality honey. In this way we can support beekeepers along our supply chain.
Coffee production has been found to double when purposely pollinated by honey bees Honey harvest provides an off season income for coffee farmers Honey sales provide an alternative source of income to deforestation should the coffee farms fail Honey production does not require ownership of land, making it an option for young people or disengaged members of the community
