Our Story


Sustainable, Responsibly Sourced Honey Produced by "Killer Bees" in the Ecuadorian Highlands

The Cotacachi Honey Fund provides beehives, equipment and training for small scale farmers in Ecuador. The Fund also purchases honey from these farmers at above fair trade prices and sells it in the United States, providing families with a reliable and consistent income source. All profits from sales are reinvested in beekeeping training and infrastructure and for educational scholarships for Ecuadorian children.

The Cotacachi Honey Fund helps secure grant

Ecuador's Ministry of Agriculture ("Programa Buen Vivir") selected our project to receive a $180,000 grant over the next two years to expand from 50 to 500 beehives. Forty-five new farmers in the Intag region will receive technical assistance and ten beehives each to participate in the program.
