No customer service
By: Jean Gilmore    (Apr 17, 2014)

I ordered Premium Chunk Bee Propolis on January 4th. I didn't hear from BannerBee and Emailed them 10 days later asking when my order would be shipping, as the east was having bad weather. I was willing to wait if they would just keep me informed. I received an email that it shipped on January 14th. I waited until February 5th and called and left a message that I had still not received my package and could they please put a tracer on it. I have emailed them. I have never received my package, a reply, nor a refund. Very disappointing. I was willing to work around the bad weather the east was having but they were not, if that was even the problem.

Great service, wonderful products
By: Rebecca Roach    (May 12, 2012)

BannerBee far surpassed my expectations. Impressive on every level, including quality of products and service.

My first order included enriched honey, bee pollen, propolis tincture, and a bees wax candle. Blown away by the outstanding quality! These products are top-of-the-line, and a big step up from anything I've been able to find or purchase in local stores - including Whole Foods.

The two star ratings by previous reviewers are NOT a fair reflection of this company. BannerBee is FIVE star quality, service, and products.

black propolis
By: Matthew Piltingsrud    (May 25, 2010)

I've learned there are three different grades of propolis: green, brown and black. Green is considered the best, followed by brown and then black. I just received my propolis from this farm, and it's pitch black.

We do not sell Brazilian green propolis (which actually has 12 grades itself) nor did we advertise that we sell a particular grade or color of propolis as it changes slightly depending upon the locale of the hives that we collect from - our propolis is generally red/brown/black in this region. Brazil has the richest plant life diversity in the world including eucalyptus which is why it is thought to be of the highest quality - we are not located in Brazil nor do we import from Brazil at this time. Likewise, we do not sell our propolis at Brazilian Green Propolis prices. We have had very good response from customers who use both our chunk propolis and propolis tinctures for overall improved immune systems and health benefits!

Incidentally, we have always provided a picture on this LocalHarvest site (that you can even magnify to a very large degree) that shows the customer exactly what our propolis looks like - and, as a customer, I would not expect anything different. Perhaps, if you were as shocked to receive our dark propolis as you sound like you are - you should have contacted us with any questions or concerns. Have a great day!



best honey products
By: laura McCullough    (Jan 7, 2010)

NakedBee offers the finest honey products. far superior to items found in your grocery stores. all natural too. small family business, very small indeed, where even the children are an important part of the business process....from collecting the raw product to packaging and marketing.

the honey sticks are a family favorite as is the bee pollen. i even burned the candles in December at an annual Christmas party! something for everyone at the NakedBee!
