FRESH FROM FLORIDA
OUR RAW HONEY
Certified Non-GMO and Kosher Organics
Like enjoying and appreciating wine, everyone has their unique take when it comes to tasting honey. Some prefer it strong and robust while others, blend and mild. Whatever the flavour, and whatever the aroma, so long as the honey is KeezBeez honey,
it is as good as gold.
How it All Started
Keez Beez was started in 2007 by two married, recently retired professionals who had moved to live in the Florida Keys. Isabelle gave John a single beehive as a surprise birthday present which was kept on the upstairs balcony of their new home on Sombrero Isle, Marathon. Neither had any intention of becoming full time beekeepers or honey producers.
FIRST HONEY HARVEST
Amazingly, that single beehive produced over 200lbs of delicious raw honey in the first year! That's way more honey than any retired couple could use, and much of it was given away to friends, relatives, and neighbors who were all so impressed with the taste and quality of the honey that the consensus was "You've got to sell this!"
The first dozen 1lb glass bottles labeled with a primitive home computer and printer went out to the local health food store in Marathon in the summer of 2007. It sold within a week and the store wanted more honey. A Lot more honey!
TO FULL TIME
Southernmost Professional Beekeepers
One beehive became, two, then four, the eight, then the balcony was too small to harvest honey. Keez Beez joined the Fresh from Florida agricultural program, became a state registered bee-keeping company, and the rest is history.
What started out as a hobby in 2007 soon became a thriving business, with 600 beehives and a variety of products. In everything that we do, we are committed to producing the best quality, pure, raw honey in the market.
Today, our honey can be found in many independent stores in Florida and in major supermarket chains like Publix, Milams, and Winn Dixie.
