​This is the fourth year we've offered local honey from our bee-yard in Hillsboro Oregon and once again the bees have given us something unexpected. This year our Hillsboro honey is a dark amber colored and full flavored without being overly strong or bitter as some darker honeys can be. The flavor is fruity, smooth and mild, with blackberry being the predominant nectar source. This is similar to our lighter colored Cornelius honey but with more fruity/berry flavors and less floral elements. We never know what kind of honey to expect from our Hillsboro bees but we love it and couldn't be more pleased! We are offering our Hillsboro Raw Honey in pint and quart glass jars.

Once again our Dayton bee yard was our most productive location of the year. Strong and healthy bees and lots of delicious local honey! These bees have made a wonderfully smooth and buttery honey with hints of vanilla and marshmallows! (A little bit darker this year than last). Our Dayton honey comes from hives located on Grand Island, a stones throw away from the beautiful Upper Willamette River. This region is noted for large organic farms growing pumpkins and many different fruits, vegetables, seeds and grains. The moist riverbanks support plentiful wild blackberries and wildflowers even through the hot dry summer season. We suspect the buttery marshmallow flavor originates from the meadowfoam plants which are commonly used in the area as part of a crop rotation scheme. This is one fabulous honey and one taste will surely put a smile on your face! We are offering our Dayton Raw Honey in pint and quart glass jars.

​As with all of our bee yards no antibiotics or synthetic chemicals are ever used in our hives. When necessary, essential oils and organic acids are used to keep our bees strong and healthy. Our local honey is considered to be raw because it is never heated over 90 degrees and is gently strained to remove any incidental unwanted debris without removing the beneficial pollens. We do not use any destructive filtering processes as is typical of the larger honey producers.

We use glass jars because we believe they are best able to preserve and protect the raw honey's delicate flavors without the risk of introducing any unwanted chemicals into the honey as can happen from a plastic container. Glass is heavier than plastic and does cost more to ship but we feel the added expense is a worthwhile investment to ensure the quality of the honey.

Farmer Gene's Honey is made from the natural wildflowers and agricultural crops surrounding each apiary site. It is all single source and never blended. Because bees forage from flowers near to their hives the flavors from one apiary site and the next vary greatly. We cherish this difference and bottle the honey from each location separately. Location to location and year to year no two honey harvests are ever the same, each and every one a treasure to be enjoyed! Honey in Portland, Thank you!
