Champane's Bee Company

Metamora, MI

Champane’s Bee Company was founded in 2012, in a small honey house. Our raw honey became so popular that we moved into a much larger facility to distribute honey to all our customers and retailers throughout the state. Our Michigan Pure Raw Honey is harvested with no filtering to ensure all of the minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants remain whole. We continue to relish our role in providing this healthy food to you – our most valued customer.

Our highest priority is to provide you, our most valued customer, with the finest honey available. We care about the quality of our honey, your health, and benefits that only premium honey can bring you. Our honey is pure, natural, high quality, and local. We are truly grateful and passionate about our honeybees, and for the honey they provide for us. From our beehives to your homes! Enjoy!

A Lifetime of Effort

It takes nectar from approximately 26 million flowers to make one pound of honey.

A honeybee must visit between several hundred to more than one thousand flowers in order to fill her honey stomach.

A colony of bees may collectively travel as far as fifty thousand miles to make just a pound of honey.

It takes one thousand bees to make an ounce of honey. This is more than a single honey can produce in her life.

A hive can produce sixty to one hundred pounds of honey a year.

A bee colony of one hundred thousand bees can make ten pounds of honey per day, which is the much more than bees need themselves

When Honey Crystallizes


When honey crystallizes, it is still edible and nutritious as ever. It has very thick and grainy appearance. It also lightens in color compared to when your honey was pourable Crystallized honey is perfectly good to eat and preferable to many people.

Thankfully, honey can be returned to its liquid state with little effort. Heat some water in a pot and put your honey container inn the pot of hot water until the honey turns liquid. This gentle transfer of heat to the honey helps bring it back to liquid form without overheating the honey.
