Our Farm

Birthed from a combination of family-love and skill, beekeeping first began with my Grandfather in Michoacan, Mexico. He tended and cared for the bees on his farm while my Grandmother sold beeswax at the local mercado. He later passed down his skillset to my father who cared for his own bees on our family-farm in Merced, California.  
The craft was later passed on to me. As my father was diagnosed with cancer, he could no longer tend to the hives himself. The idea of infusing harvested raw honey with CBD came to me as I searched to find a way to ease my fathers’ pain as he got sicker. The raw plant proved too harsh to ingest so we infused CBD oil with our sweet honey, improving the experience and taste, all while maintaining the benefit of pain relief.
Thus, Happy Organics was born- now offering a variety of honey and hemp-derived products that are sweet, sustainable, and sure to make you smile. Our story continues as we share the craft of beekeeping with future generations and strive to increase sustainability and educate our community on the importance of bees. 

Our family farm rests in the heart of the Central Valley of California. Here, on our ten-acre farm, we house thirty-four beehives that collect pollen and nectar from our gardens. Our property grows lavender, rosemary, wildflowers, borage, sunflowers, citrus, pomegranate trees and fig trees. We harvest our honey twice a year when our bees produce an excess amount of honey. 

Happy Organics Founder, Jessica Gonzalez is a Chicana entrepreneur and third-generation beekeeper specializing in wellness, sustainable farming and agriculture technology. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Mills College in Computer Science. Upon returning to her family farm, Jessica was inspired to use innovative and regenerative farming principles to make wellness products that would benefit those around her. Jessica’s love for farming and technology culminated when Happy Organics was founded in 2018.

 As our farm grows and our bee population increases, we're implementing more and more regenerative farming principles. We hope to make improvements that will connect our community to our gardens.
