?Nathan initially sold the honey he harvested to neighbors, family, and friends and by 2013, Carmichael's Honey LLC was born. He started with 50 hives of his own, but as sales took off, he began buying bulk honey from other producers such as his father. By the second year of operations, Carmichael's Honey was found in local and regional grocery stores and today is sold in over 2,000 retail stores across ten states.
During 2020, permanent financing was secured through Rayne State Bank and Louisiana Capital CDC, Inc. via the SBA 504 loan program for the purchase of a larger facility to serve as the new home for Carmichael's Honey plus equipment to expand their operations to include bottling and distribution of their many products.
