Busy Bees Since 2015

From Our Hives

Sweet Sophia was created because we saw a need. Our friends and families wanted access to local honey that didn’t have all the chemicals that store bought honey has. One thing led to another and we started making handmade products along with our honey like beard balms and chap sticks and from this- Sweet Sophia was born. Everything we make is with you in mind. From using the simplest of ingredients to on-time shipping, we make sure that we put you first. Sweet Sophia was named after my sweet daughter, Sophia. She has had allergies all her life and we wanted to be able to give her options and choices and that is exactly what we did.
