About Southwest Honey Co.

Our volunteer-operated organization was founded as an initiative to conserve our local pollinator population. On a global level, pollinators are declining; which if left unaddressed, will drastically change the world as we know it. In response to this crisis, we strapped on our veils, slid on our gloves and began to partner with organic farmers and natural property owners in the Fort Wayne, Indiana area and began to build apiaries populated from local honey bee swarms.

We currently provide refuge for 50 colonies in our sustainably kept, organic apiaries. It is from these hives that we harvest raw honey and create local handmade products. Proceeds go towards creating sustainable habitats for pollinators, promoting awareness of their population decline & educating the public on ways they can help.
