When I was just four, my family encouraged me to make a product for a Children's business competition and Austin Lemonade Day. So I put on my thinking cap. I thought about some ideas. While I was thinking, two big events happened.
I got stung by a bee. Twice.
Then my Great Granny Helen, who lives in Cameron, South Carolina, sent my family a 1940's cookbook, which included her special recipe for Flaxseed Lemonade.
I didn't enjoy the bee stings at all. They scared me. But then something strange happened. I became fascinated with bees. I learned all about what they do for me and our ecosystem. So then I thought, what if I make something that helps honeybees and uses my Great Granny Helen's recipe?
That's how Me & the Bees Lemonade was born. It comes from my Great Granny Helen's flaxseed recipe and my new love for bees. So that's why we sweeten it with local honey. And today my little idea continues to grow.
We are committed to satisfying your thirst while caring for the environment. We source our ingredients locally to the greatest extent possible. Our mint and honey are sourced from local Austin farmers and beekeepers who utilize sustainable farming and beekeeping practices.
Our award-winning lemonade uses 100% fresh-squeezed lemon juice – Not from Concentrate. It is sweetened primarily with local honey with some 100% cane sugar. Organic mint and flaxseed are added to make it a healthier beverage choice. No caffeine, no high-fructose corn syrup, no worries!
Today, the award-winning Me & the Bees Lemonade is buzzing off the shelves of Whole Foods Market, the world’s leader in natural and organic foods, and available at a growing number of restaurants, food trailers and natural food delivery companies.
