Welcome to Real Alaska Honey! We have created this site to help spread the word about the value of bees and honey. Bees and honey are getting a lot of attention as of late, and for good reason. Beekeepers in many parts of the world are experiencing large die-offs of their hives, battling parasites and other diseases, and these issues have dramatic implications for the food supply, because many of our foods are dependent upon pollination provided by bees.

If you’ve visited this site before, we posted a piece about this legislation last year. If you want to get up to speed on the issue, take a look at this post.
