The Bee Counter:  1,260,000     Next Hive Give Away:  1,320,000

Congratulations to the winners!

The bee counter is how many bees KingView Mead was able to donate based on you purchasing our goods.  Hive Give Away is the next point in which we’ll give away a hive or nuc.

As you purchase, the bee counter goes up and once it hits the Hive Give Away amount, we’ll draw another winner!

Already familiar with our program, fill out the Mead-For-Bees form now.

Our Pledge: 10% of all sales of our meads, wines and KingView brand attire will go to the direct purchase of new boxes, frames and bee nucs for local beekeepers and apiaries to be given away via sweepstakes drawings!  We don’t ask for anything in return, no contract to supply us with honey, we supply you to keep expanding.  The Noble Cause.

CONGRATULATIONS! to the 11 new winners of our Mead-For-Bees program!

The following individuals were drawn at the 2016 PA State Beekeepers Association Annual Conference. Every hour we were there we drew a name and these lucky eleven were selected! Thank you all for for the support. We had a great time at the event, hearing updates about the state of beekeeping in Pennsylvania and meeting the noble masses of beekeepers helping all of us!

We want to highlight the good work you do but also qualify that you know what you’re doing, are looking to grow, and partner with us in this cause. Here are the qualifications to be considered.

Collect Bees!

Certain bottles of our products have a collectible bee on top that reminds you you’re doing a good thing and fighting the decline in the bee population. We encourage you to collect and display them to create your own symbolic hive at home or place of business. Know that for each $1 we donate means you’ve helped to contribute over 150 bees back into our world!  Check out our Bee Bead page here.
