Worker B Returns to Raw Honey

Worker B returns to their roots as beekeepers, adding raw honey to their collection of honeybee inspired products.  A three-person company centered in Minneapolis, MN, Worker B found their start with local beekeepers and community-based farming.

The new Worker B raw honeys are sourced from select beekeepers chosen for their dedication to sustainable relationships with honeybees.  Their honeys are never heated or filtered, preserving all the nutritional and enzymatic virtues of raw honey.  Worker B is offering two individual varieties to start:

The Basswood Blend.  Sourced form the glacial plains of central Minnesota, this variety is primarily fromthe Basswood tree blossoms, featuring bright flavor notes of mint, grass and thyme.  This is the same raw honey used in Worker B’s skincare formulations.

Buckwheat Honey.  A stout varietal honey sourced from Worker B’s friends in Quebec, Canada.  This intense honey showcases robust molasses, chocolate, and malt flavor highlights, exemplifying the savory side of honey.

“The key to distinct honey varietals is knowing exactly what is happening around a beehive at a specific location and nuances of the harvest season.  The specificity of flavor comes directly from the forage patterns of the honeybee,” said Liesa Helfen, co-owner and founding member of Worker B.  “The goal of the Worker B raw honey collection is to focus on sustainable beekeepers and the locations they collect from, resulting in spectacular flavor profiles of raw honey.”

Worker B ingredients come direct from the hive, forming the base for their Skincare, Candle and Varietal Raw Honey collections.  Worker B performs all aspects of their business from product concept to formulation, from production to fulfillment.  Now in their fourth year, Worker B still maintains a series of their own beehives and continues their hands-on approach to ingredient sourcing that sets them apart from traditional skincare and lifestyle brands.

Worker B products are available at select retailers and online.
