After retiring, Betty Sayers needed to find something to fill her empty hours. After taking a beginner's class for beekeepers, Betty knew it was a challenging career, but she knew it was her calling. With lots of courage and bravery, she opened a hive housing 30,000 bees in an abandoned pasture near Elm Creek, Nebraska. With so many bees and potential, the idea of making mustard popped into her mind and with the help of her neighbor and local brewer, the famous Spicy Beer Mustard was created. The Buzz Savories business has flourished into a successful company since then.
Alan Koelling, the mastermind of sunflower oil, became a farmer the minute he could walk. Through the years, to be a better steward of the environment, Alan began using sunflowers as a renewable energy source on the farm. From research, he discovered the handful of benefits that sunflowers provide. They are rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants, high in beneficial fats, and cholesterol and trans-fat free. Alan then decided to use his crop as a direct source for sunflower cooking oil. Simply Sunflower was then founded. They now sell in over 350 stores across America!
