For 30 years, Foothills Honey Company has provided excellent Oregon honey, commercial pollination for a variety of Pacific Northwest and California crops and starter colonies for sale both to hobbyists and professionals.

Like most Pacific Northwest apiaries, at Foothills Honey Company we derive the majority of our income from commercial pollination services. Beekeeping is closely tied to the weather, ecology and agriculture of a region, and the climate in Oregon and Washington produces a vast range of blooming plants, making for prime pollination opportunities. But a wet spring, dry late summer and early fall limit honey production.


*March 17 Update: We have sold out of the first wave of nucleus hives but are continuing to build more. Expect any orders placed after March 17 to be filled no sooner than four weeks after the order date.*
