Husband and wife team Matt Dudin and Samantha Lee are celebrating the one-year anniversary of Bee Archetype, their all-natural bee products business in the Hudson Valley. Bee Archetype produces edible raw honey products, candles, and a complete line of body products such as lip balm, lotions and soap.
“We start by farming raw honey and beeswax from our hives, and these form the basic ingredients for all of our handmade products,” says Dudin. “The business began as a hobby, and now it reflects our shared vision of living an earth-conscious, sustainable farming lifestyle.”
Dudin says that the bee colonies behind Bee Archetype products are treatment free, meaning that no antibiotics or pesticides are used. The company never uses artificial scents, dyes or parabens in any of its products, which can be purchased both online and at local farmers markets and festivals. “Bee Archetype products can also be found in earth-conscious restaurants and boutiques throughout the Hudson Valley,” notes Dudin.
