i. Company information

NOBLESVILLE, IN - BeeFree Gluten-Free Bakery (started January 2010) is locally owned and operated by Jennifer Wiese in Noblesville, IN. 

Jennifer Wiese is a mother of four boys with dietary needs, one with autism. This inspired the creation of wonderful tasting treats for her boys and the rest of the family. Created over 10 years ago and adapted for large scale 3 years ago.

Jennifer Wiese starting BeeFreeOUR STORY.

When Jennifer Wiese's oldest son was diagnosed with autism at the age of 8, she discovered that following a gluten- and casein-free diet helped him be a happier, thriving little boy. The hitch was that the gluten-free foods available on grocery store shelves in her town were dry, bland and very expensive.

"I wanted to give my son a chocolate chip cookie that tasted like a real chocolate chip cookie," she says. "The thought of feeding my family cardboard cookies just would not do!"

At BeeFree, we believe that snacks matter and they better be delicious. We are committed to bringing great-tasting, best-quality treats to anyone who enjoys our cookies, Warrior Mixes and baking products. While sticking to our gluten-, grain- and dairy-free guns is part of who we are, we think you and your family should be free to love every bite!

ii. What we do

The Kitchen WarriorBeeFree produces and sells both high-quality, gluten-free and grainless food products from basic healthy ingredients that are preservative-free. With our current line based on 3 main types: gluten-free cookies, gluten-free pizza dough balls, and our grainless gluten-free snack mix made with almonds and other seeds sweetened with honey and still moist with coconut oil. Our bestselling snack mix comes in 4 flavors and 2 retail sizes. Our product is currently manufactured in 2 different co-packing locations with the goal of bringing production in-house at appropriate sales level.

BeeFree Warrior Mix

You make choices so you feel, perform and live better. Don't stop there by compromising on taste. When my husband and I decided to go gluten free for the oldest of our four boys, I couldn't find a chocolate chip cookie that tasted like the "real thing" so I took matter into my own kitchen. Many recipes later, I gave him a cookie I felt great about. BeeFree Warrior Mix was inspired by our son, growing up fighting the battle against autism. He's a real-life warrior armed with a gluten/casein-free diet and overcoming one day at a time. At BeeFree, we are passionate about making junk-free treats for every day warriors. What you put into your body matters, and it better be delicious.

BeeFree Gluten-free Flour/Meal for Baking

Finding good GF/CF food in Noblesville wasn’t easy, and an 8-year-old has limited patience after being asked to give up all his favorite foods. The only choice was to get creative. So we started baking, trying to find a combination of flours that would give their baked goods a decent texture.
