Savannah Bee’s mission is to provide pure healthy honey and hive inspired health and beauty products while educating people about the wonders of the honey bee and preserving the art of beekeeping.
Staying true to Savannah Bee’s mission, Ted Dennard, Owner and President, is using his expanded reach to educate more people about the wonder of the honeybee. In 2013, he founded the Bee Cause Project to stimulate curiosity in young people about the importance of honey bees in our lives, and the need to understand and embrace them and to care about their well-being through the installation of beehives in 1,000 schools. He regularly speaks with various organizations, garden clubs, and loves teaching kids (and adults) about honeybees. Ted’s lifelong passion for honeybees is seen in his company, the specialty honey, and the luxurious, beehive-based body care products he distributes. Today, Savannah Bee Company is work to maintain quality and improve systems while expanding the company’s reach. Ted’s hope is that Savannah Bee Company emulates a beehive where all his business touches is benefitted.
