PALM PIKE’S MISSION
Save the bees, enjoy the outdoors, respect nature, and live one sweet life.
LIVE ONE SWEET LIFE
Palm Pike was founded with the environment in mind. From the coastal palms of South Florida to the mountain pikes of the Appalachians and beyond, we want to promote and protect a life of meaning outside the box. We started as beekeepers passionate about saving bees and have since branched out into growing cut flowers. We want to share how to live a meaningful life while minimizing the impact on our environment.
Founded by Jovany Rodriguez and Tasha Trujillo, we are utterly obsessed with the outdoors. Our love for bees started in 2015 when Tasha first learned about the declining bee population while studying Sustainability at Florida International University. Jovany, of course, was completely on board with becoming beekeepers and without him, we wouldn’t have gotten our first hive in 2016! The rest is history and we’re madly in love with this one sweet life. In 2020, we decided to start growing cut flowers for the South Florida community. We currently grow flowers at our bee yard so our farming practices are bee friendly.
ABOUT OUR COMMITMENT
As a sustainable apiary, we are committed to doing our best to make sure our operation has the least impact on the environment. When it comes to our products, we try to use completely recyclable items like our glass honey jars with metal tops. Our t-shirts are 100% cotton and are screen printed locally here in Miami, FL using eco-friendly ink. When possible, we also build our own beekeeping materials from salvaged wood. Our flowers are grown using organic and bee friendly practices so we can provide a beautiful habitat for all pollinators. Our goal is to keep healthy bees so we can provide the world with delicious, good-for-you, honey while helping the environment through our cut flowers!
