About Us

OUR VISION

We are instrumental in transforming the world toward a sustainable food production system which supports the health of the people who depend on it, as well as the earth’s precious ecosystems. We will not be satisfied until farming in Oregon and the West Coast (and then the world) is 100% organic and sustainable. That's why we started the #OrganicOregon #OrganicWorld campaign, where at least 1% of our annual profits go toward organic research, educational programs for farmers and trade partners, and to organizations focused on creating healthy, Organic food systems and communities.

OUR HISTORY

Honey Heaven was established in 1972 as a specialty honey shop in Eugene. The business was purchased by Eugene Scott in 1981 and he changed the business focus to wholesale after having trouble with employees eating the product inventory. In August of 2003, Charlie and Julie Tilt purchased the business from Eugene when he retired. We have grown in many ways since then, including selling a greater diversity of products. Consequently, we thought a name change that embodies our spirit would be appropriate. We chose the hummingbird because of its versatility it flies in all directions and its gentle nature- it sips the nectar of the flowers without harming the flowers. Since 2007, our name is Hummingbird Wholesale! Hummingbird Wholesale remains a small, family owned and operated business focused on being a positive force for change in the food industry.
