BeeSweet Lemonade was started by Mikaila Ulmer at 4 years old. Her family encouraged her to make a product for a Children's business competition (the Acton Children’s Business Fair) and Austin Lemonade Day. After getting stung by a bee, she became fascinated with them. She discovered all about what they do for our ecosystem. She then imagined what she could do to help the honeybees. She used her Great Great Granny Helen's flaxseed recipe and local honey as a sweetener to birth BeeSweet Lemonade.
