Mikaila is determined to quench the thirst of her customers and inspire healthy habits, while educating families about the importance of honeybees and how to save them. She passionately facilitates workshops about honeybees and entrepreneurship. But most importantly, Mikaila donates over 10% of the profits from the sale of her lemonade to organizations on how to save the honeybee.
It all started when four-year-old Mikaila Ulmer signed up for a children’s entrepreneur event. While thinking about a product to create, two big events happened:
- She was stung by a bee, twice in one week.
- Mikaila’s great-granny Helen sent her a 1940's cookbook, which included great-granny’s special recipe for flaxseed lemonade.
After the stings, Mikaila became afraid of bees, but her parents encouraged her to do a little research on them. Mikaila immediately became fascinated with honeybees and their importance to our ecosystem. She wanted to create a product that would combine her love for great-granny Helen’s flaxseed lemonade recipe and her compassion for the dying honeybee population.
