Colorado Hemp Honey is produced by Frangiosa Farms at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. We produce raw honey based foods.
“Frangiosa Farms is committed to responsible beekeeping in the face of bee decline through community education, backyard beekeeping, and support of locally sourced pure simple honey. I raise my bees with organic practices. I love to talk about the wonderful world of bees and the benefits of local, raw honey.” ~Nick French, Founder and Beekeeper.
Our hemp is non-GMO and responsibly grown, without pesticides, in pristine soil. It is repeatedly tested for phytonutrients and to ensure there are no impurities or contaminants.
Nick French has been keeping bees since 2008 in urban farms, on rooftops, and in backyards. His farm has nearly 100 hives in 6 apiaries in and around Denver, Colorado. Nick helps the bees provide pollination services, educates children, conducts backyard beekeeping classes, and produces pure, raw honey.
Interests and Education: Nick is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and has gained knowledge through his time and travels while in the service and through traditional education. His studies have included: biology, tropical marine biology (Australia), microbiology, and finance. Nick is passionate about urban farming. He uses an integrative approach to growing veggies, composting, raising backyard chickens and bees, and using a subterranean greenhouse all on less than 0.22 acres!
The Value: When you support Frangiosa Farms you are making a difference in the battle to save the bee. We are committed to using every penny of your donations to buy more equipment to establish new bee colonies, develop programs that educate new beekeepers and supporters, and create a bee business where the honey sales go directly back to create more colonies. It is a sustainable loop where the bees help to save themselves!
The Focus: Frangiosa Farms is focused on natural, sustainable beekeeping practices that considers the long term effects of maintaining healthy bee colonies. If chemicals and pollutants in the environment are killing bees, it does not make sense to add chemicals to a hive in order to make them healthy.
The best way is to work with the bees. It is the only way!
