Jubilee Bee Honey

Jubilee Bee Honey Nicaragua Bee Keeper Sustainability Project: Partner with us in our support of the honey worker co-ops in Nicaragua.  

We are getting ready to launch this new honey sku. The Jubilee Bee Honey is named after the 501c3 charity, Jubilee House.  Bee keeper sustainability projects have been an important part of our work at Once Again.  About 17 years ago, Jubilee House, contacted Once Again Nut Butter’s co-founders, Jeremy Thaler and Constance Potter regarding growing sesame seeds for Once Again’s Tahini.  After a visit from our founders, Jeremy made an inquiry about the possibility of having the locals source honey. Jeremy and Jubilee House contacted and began working with three honey producing cooperatives: Las  Flores, San Ramon, and COSAP in Mateare (started by a group of nuns).  These 3  co-ops were in need of start-up help and the  Jubilee House assisted them in getting their bee farms organic certification.

Once Again supported their work through an interest free micro lending initiative that was used to expand the co-ops production, add hives and build a processing room along with the investment in some equipment.  Later, upon the success of the bee co-ops, Once Again purchased their honey and donated the balance of the loaned funds to set up the bee farms expansion needs.  Today, you can taste our collective sweet success.  Get ready to enjoy, Jubilee Bee Honey.

Organic and Fair Trade Certified   Killer Bee Honey

This South American honey is harvested by the indigenous bee keepers of the Amazon.  Fear the killer bee, prolific and hardy pollinators known for aggressively protecting their hives, but have no fear of our wonderfully rich tasting aromatic killer bee honey.  You’ll enjoy every sticky drop. 

Organic and Fair Trade Certified  Rain Flower Honey

Collected by small communities of bee keepers through different flowering seasons. This honey is meticulously gathered and blended from a variety of beautiful wild rainforest flowers in Brazil. Enjoy our rich and aromatic honey.

  1. I am concerned about this new honey enterprise because we are vegan and believe that honey harvesting hurts the insects. I would especially wonder how the harvest of killer bee honey is accomplished. We have used your peanut and nutbutter products for many years, but I am not sure we can support your company any longer. Please tell me about the harvest techniques used for the honey. Do you use the honey in the peanut or nut butters? I hope not.

  2. Hi Lynn! Thank you for taking the time to ask me about this. We have been bottling honey for 18 years, the Dawes Hill Honey line is our honey line. We purchased the company, Dawes Hill in 1992. A quick link to that secion of our website is: http://www.daweshill.com

    Our honey products are bottled on their own dedicated jar line, we do not share our honey line with any of our nut butter products, nor do we put any honey products in our nut butters. All of our nut butters are vegan products as you know.

    We purchase our honey from bee keepers withing a 60 mile radius of Once Again for our clover and wildflower honey. Our honeycreme comes from Alberta, Canada and our new additions, the Jubilee Bee honey comes from co-ops in Nicaragua. The killer bee honey and rain flower honey are both products of Brazil.

    We are not bee keepers at Once Again, we are manufactures, we puchase honey in a raw state and bottle it for distribution. We have had lasting relationships with nearly all of our bee keepers, most of them for over a decade and in some cases 18 years.

    I hope this information helps you, again I can’t thank you enough for asking such great questions. If you need anything additional, I invite you to contact me personally. Gael Orr gorr@onceagainnutbutter.com
