Little Heathen Honey was formed from the love of gardening.  We initially starting beekeeping to help with the pollination of our garden and it grew into something much more.  We have an appreciation for all things natural and our Honey is just that.  100% Raw All Natural Wildflower Honey.
If you have a Honey Bee swarm, call us we can help.  No swarm too small, we collect them all! We are in the business of preserving our pollinators and there is no charge to remove a swarm.  Bees are our business.

SWARM SEASON!

by Kristen Beck on 03/03/15

Well it's that time of year again, SWARM SEASON!  I do love swarm season, when the bees decide to relocate to the most ridiculous locations!  We have our hotline ready so if you see a swarm give us a call, we will pick them up and rehome them to a more appropriate location.  Why do bees swarm you ask?  Well usually they just simply run out of space in their hive.  So they create a new queen, old queen gathers half the hive and once the new queen hatches old queen takes the gang on a bit of an adventure.  Most of the time the scout bees will find a great location, other times we get a phone call.  As they say in the real estate world Location, Location, Location!  Happy to report that the bees over wintered just fine this year, only losing one hive.  With the mild weather we should be seeing a pretty decent spring flow so get ready for some really delicious honey come June!  We will also be ready for another Market season starting in June in Jacksonville, Oregon.  If you have not been, it's a must see market!  Come spend some time with us and the rest of the fantastic vendors in Jacksonville.
