Barkman Honey

A Robust H1VE

At Barkman Honey, our company is our hive – an environment that fosters collaboration, camaraderie and community service. Our H1VE program is all about growing our most valuable assets – our team members. Together we thrive by focusing on three key areas that we believe make a difference in the lives of our team and make the world a better place:

H1VE consists of:


For us, wellness encompasses three key areas: mind, body and spirit. That’s why you’ll see monthly lunch and learns, fresh fruit in our break rooms and faith-based encouragement on our walls. These are just a few of the steps we take toward improved wellness.

Core Values – Our values are what make us as a company and a collective of people working toward a shared goal. It’s the reason we’re devoted to ethical practices, lasting relationships, team member support, respecting our earth and service to our community.


We care deeply about the environment – we have only one earth that needs our love and attention. That’s why we place special focus on eco‑friendly efforts throughout our plants and offices, with our people, and in the places and communities we call home. There are several ways that we do this including:

  • Recycling everything we can, everywhere.
  • Using recycled material in the production of our products, from containers to cases to closures.
  • Reducing printed materials – we print double sided and use technology like paperless billing to save.
  • Managing energy usage – we regulate lights, temperature and electronics to save energy.
  • Conserving water by reusing and promoting awareness of how much we consume and ways to preserve water.


Whether it's providing meals for a grieving family or celebrating the arrival of a new baby, we strive to become an extended family. Our "We Care" program encourages benevolent giving and participation on the part of our team. An employee assistance program and paid time off donation opportunities provide team members additional support when needed. Our relationships move beyond our business into our communities through volunteer service and financial support of local needs and organizations we are deeply passionate about.
