Employer Summary


In The Beginning

Dick Turanski Beekeeping in 1975

GloryBee started in the family garage of Dick and Pat Turanski in 1975 with a dream of providing natural, healthy ingredients for the people of their town. Dick describes those early days as "a simple family honey stand, farming honey in the backyard and processing it in the back of the garage--the deep freeze even doubled as the sales counter". Over forty years later, we are providing the highest quality organic and natural ingredients with the same spirit as those first years of business.

Our Mission

GloryBee is built upon a foundation consisting of a belief in God and educating people about healthy living. We strive to have the highest possible ethical and moral standards for ourselves and towards our customers. In order to achieve this, we have assembled a diverse family of conscientious, dedicated and knowledgeable individuals, who are committed to quality and personalized customer service. Our unique relationship with you is why we exist. Our core values are faith, genuine relationships, healthy living, and stewardship. These core values help communicate who we are and provide everyone inside the company with a sense of purpose and meaning to guide their work.
