Saving the planet one bee at a time.

Honey Bee Emporium is a small operation and is run by Mark & Andrea. Their products are made by them and are available here online or in the Beekeeper’s Wife shop on the Oregon Coast.

About the Beekeepers: Mark has been a urban bee keeper in Boise since the 90’s and is constantly learning even though he may be considered an ‘old timer”! He still feels like a newbie and loves to learn from other bee keepers he meets. When Andrea came along in 2004, she was fascinated by the bees and loved the idea of helping them and the environment. As the years progressed she began making soap from the honey and beeswax. Now she makes lotion, lip balm, beeswax food wraps and many different types of soaps using their Local Honey!

Honey Bee Emporium cares about the bees and their survival and places their hives in bee friendly areas. They choose areas that are close to natural water sources and away from known pesticides. Once the Honey is ready for harvest, the comb is carefully uncapped and spun to extract the honey. It goes into large food grade buckets where it settles for a while before bottling. This allows the air bubbles to rise and gives a smoother final product. HBE honey is never watered down, heated or filtered in any way. It is purely raw honey and is delicious!
Being neighborhood beekeepers has been a fun experience and they love to meet with all the folks who come by one of their Pop Ups or sidewalk sales. You can know that your Honey is sourced by the flowers and bees that are raised right where you live!
