Monday, September 20, Holly Krieger
Monday, 7:00 to 830 pm
Holly is the owner of Mae Bee Honey Company, LLC founded in 2018. She received her BS degree in Zoology in 2010 and has always had a love for conservation biology since she was a little girl. She has worked in the animal industry for more than 15 years: in zoos, animal retail, dog training, animal grooming, volunteering at rescue centers, and currently being a pollinator advocate. Her home is a Certified Wildlife Habitat, and she has gone through a certified pollinator advocate program at OSU to become more educated on how to help all types of pollinators. Her husband always wanted to keep bees, and after moving back to the Midwest from the beehive state (Utah), they got their first hive—and Mae Bee Honey Company was born. The small business began with one hive, and now their apiary contains 11. What once was a way to just supply friends and family with honey has grown to selling honey and pollen at local businesses, making cosmetics through partnerships, and creating beautiful soaps and beeswax candles.
Building a brand and a small business that impacts the world in a positive way always felt like just a dream, but now Holly is able to show her three young children that with the love and support of your community, and a bit of creativity and hard work, you can reduce waste to help the earth, support your family, and help save the bees.
