Sustainable Family-Farmed Honey That Gives Back

The Sem Family In Corpus Christi, TX
We are just another Texas family wanting to make a difference. Well, ok, we have a few more kids than the average perhaps! But we want our kids to grow up knowing that our actions matter, that helping others is ALWAYS the best way, and that they can actually make a difference in this world.

I grew up in a family where half of my uncles were family-scale farmers. I watched as one by one they were forced to sell their farms and find a new way to live after being crowded out by conglomerates. The focus of the 1990s was price point, and they simply couldn't make it work anymore. My wife also grew up with a father who owned a small business also shut down by cheap offshore pricing.

Fast-forward to 2017 where a new generation - my generation - understands that more than price matters. We want natural, pure, organic products again. Products like my uncles produced. But family-scale farmers like my uncles still have a challenge finding the right kind of buyer for their natural products.

That's a big reason why we decided to start Go Raw Honey. Our vision is to build a space where other verified small family-owned apiaries can source their honey to people who know they are only going to get pure, raw, unfiltered honey made with care while helping support sustainable family-scale farming.

Thanks for wanting to be a part of this journey!
