Dawg Gone Bees

Jacki Mack and her husband, Hal, started their business, Dawg Gone Bees, after Hal’s grandfather passed away two years ago. They adopted his passion for honey making and moved equipment from his home into theirs.

Jacki always wanted to launch a family-owned business, and that’s just what they did. The Macks even included their four-legged friends in their venture. Each product is named for one of their dogs: Penny, Nebula, FlipFlop, MJ, and Lucky. And they donate a portion of their profits to the SPCA!
