Our Farm

Made by love AND Skill

3 generations of beekeeepers

Beekeeping first began with my grandfather in Michoacán, 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 skill set to my father, who cared for his own bees on our family farm in Merced, California.
A family's journey

our new approach

My father was diagnosed with cancer and could no longer tend to the hives himself. The idea of infusing our raw honey with cbd came to me as I searched to find a way to ease my fathers pain. 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. Our CBD honey is unique in that we use Hemp RSO (Rick Simpson Oil), a full-spectrum hemp extract, that provides a long list of therapeutic benefits.

Thus, happy organics was born...

offering a variety of honey and hemp-derived products that are sweet, sustainable and sure to make you smile

Our family farm rests in the heart of the Central Valley of California. here, on our ten acre farm, we house thirty-four hives that collect pollen from our gardens. our property grows lavender, rosemary, wildflowers, borage, sunflowers, citrus, pomegranate trees and fig trees.

Happy Bees, Happy Honey, Happy You!

Our Bees

Honey bees are fascinating little beings that work in tandem to ensure the well-being of their colony as a whole and we in turn work hard to ensure that they will not only survive, but thrive on their own long after we are gone. We are always researching and are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve their homes and well-being. Very recently, we planted thousands of wildflower seeds in order to attract more native pollinators and give our honey bees safe, reliable, chemical-free, and nutritionally-rich food/resources. We strive to be as sustainable as possible and we always put our honey bees first and never take more than they can give.

Sustainability

We are committed

We are committed to helping the bees and protecting native pollinators. We are currently researching and testing a more balanced way of pollinating our crops using native land to attract native pollinators. In doing so, we are helping cut back on the overexploitation of bees in the food crop industry. We are constantly looking for new ways to improve the lives of our bees and are continuously working towards giving them their most ideal environment, both inside and outside their hives. We hope to educate and spread awareness on the importance of our efforts.

And our hives are important

The health and safety of our bees are our top priorities so we never take more honey than they can give. We only harvest honey when it is appropriate to do so, cultivating small batch honey products and thus ensuring the overall wellness and happiness of every single one of our beautiful hives.

Our family farm rests in the heart of the Central Valley of California. here, on our ten acre farm, we house thirty-four hives that collect pollen from our gardens. our property grows lavender, rosemary, wildflowers, borage, sunflowers, citrus, pomegranate trees and fig trees.

General Questions

Our honey is harvested thoughtfully and carefully in small batches. We never take more than the bees can give. Our honey is seasonal and every variety will vary in color, taste, texture and smell.

Our honey is not certified organic. Bees can fly out a radius of 3 miles from their hive. Our farm is only 10 acres big and we cannot fully control where all of our bees forage.

Our top three selling products are our Happy Honey with CBD, Sana Salve, and the CBD Tincture.

Our honey and beeswax comes from our 10-acre farm in Merced, California, our uncle’s apiary in Salinas, California, and from different apiaries we partner with in California.

Our bees

We let our bees be bees. We create the best environment to ensure their survival but we do very little inside the hive. We only go inside their homes when absolutely necessary because opening up their hives is a very stressful event for them. We usually only go in twice a year. In the spring we add a box to their home to allow them to grow and in the fall we remove a box if possible for our honey harvest.

I am a third-generation beekeeper. I was taught by my father who was taught by his father in Mexico. I started learning about bees and beekeeping in 2017.

We currently have 34 hives on our property and we have 4 hives at Happy Acre Farm in Livermore. We also monitor a hive at Brown Girl Farms.

We offer free YouTube videos on beekeeping. Subscribe to our channel on youtube: Happy Beekeeping Club

CBD 101

We get our CBD from a farm in Oregon.

Yes, all of the cbd used in our products is 3rd party tested to ensure quality.

Yes, our CBD is certified organic!

Most of our clients use our products for anxiety, stress, sleeplessness, and chronic pain. There are many other uses and benefits of CBD.

The CBD products we carry can be used orally and topically. The happy honey, mexican hot chocolate, and tincture can be used orally. The Sana Salve and Calming Massage Oil can be used topically.

Answer

Most drug tests will look for the THC compound in your system. Since our CBD products use full-spectrum they contain less than 0.3% THC, and there is a small chance that it can test positively on a drug test.

CBD does not produce the same ‘high’ effect as THC. The psychoactive effects of CBD are more commonly described as a sense of calmness.
