Welcome to My Humble Hive

I am Susan Butts, owner and beekeeper of Butts Bees LLC Apiary and WonderBee Organics of Mississippi.
Organic sustainable diversity is as important to our children, our community and our planet, as it is to the future of our honeybees. My daughters and sons were all birthed at home, breast-fed, carried, back-packed and home schooled. We are passionate about feeding our family good clean foods.

I have been beekeeping since 2003. From the very start, we have used only organic methods. It all began because we had an organic garden to help feed our growing family (we have six children). Our neighbor said we MUST get a hive, and with his help, we did. So the passion ( or insanity) began!
We all care for our honeybees. It teaches as well as sustains us. Personally, I think women make the best beekeepers. We have a natural disposition to patience and gentleness that the bees enjoin.

What has become known as “traditional” beekeeping is not only using smoke in the hive but using an arsenal of hard chemicals, anti biotics, miticides and a homebrew of pesticides. This “traditional” beekeeper wears a HAZMAT suit and gloves to apply these treatments. Even to remove the honey from the hive they may apply yet another chemical to remove the bees from the frames. These chemicals leave residues in the wax of the hive and interfere with the life of the honeybee.

My apiary is smoke-less and 100% organically managed. What does this mean? It means I use NO Chemicals, NO Antibiotics, NO Miticides & NO Smoke in my hives. I believe that those chemicals and the residues they leave behind are bad for the honeybee and bad for our families. In this fast paced world, the honeybees deserve a beekeeper that is willing to slow down and let bees be bees in their natural state.

Bees store honey for their use during times that have nothing blooming. When they produce a surplus we harvest it. We Never take all of their stores! We leave them enough to rebuild their strong colonies and never feed them High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Our method of beekeeping is allowing the bees to draw their own comb. We do not use commercial foundation. We are Top Bar beekeepers in a Langstroth hive. The bees draw all their own wax which makes for a healthier comb in our comb honey and it tastes better too!
We extract by hand, we uncap by hand, we use only clean energy... muscle power!
We produce raw varietal honeys, balms, tinctures, beeswax wraps and pure bees wax candles that I am proud to offer your family for their health and their pleasure!

Naturally Candied

Honey that is not heated (raw) can (will) crystallize. Honey does not go bad but some folks prefer liquid honey to the crystallized or firm honey.
To re-liquefy honey you can:
set the jar in a warm sunny window, turn or shake as needed
or
set the jar in a double boiler with the lid off, on very low heat warm the jar. Do not heat over 100 degrees as this will begin to kill off all the natural enzymes that raw honey is good for!

Shipping Policy and Wrap

We ship via USPS. If we overcharge you for shipping by $1.00 or more we will refund your account via the same method you paid.

I am a firm believer in recycling whatever I can. It holds my costs down and yours while keeping an eye to the health of the planet.

REACH Dyes

******What is REACH?

Honey and products MADE IN THE USA

Honey and products of the hive take a lot of hard work to produce.
There are some honey sellers on this platform that sell at rock bottom prices. They link not to their social sites nor do they post pictures of their apiaries but to generic sites like wiki.
Be aware that these may be sellers that source their honey from outside the USA.
Honey should be labeled clearly where it was produced, not SOLD from.
Most beekeepers are very proud to invite you to their apiary or to show pictures!
Generally cheap honey is grocery store honey.
Why bother?
