The folks at Chinook Honey Company know how to please a sweet tooth. They make wonderful, all-natural honeys, including a specialty selection with fruit, cinnamon, pumpkin and chocolate added. Chinook Honey also sells a delicious honey ice cream. On the non-edible side, they produce beeswax candles on site, and their exclusive honey body care products are manufactured locally and sold at the Company, as well.
Watch and Learn
A trip to Chinook Honey might have you enraptured with watching the highly-motivated bees as they work their magic. The store has a live observation hive as well as an interpretive area where group tours or information sessions are conducted.
Bees for Your Health
Apitherapy, which is the medicinal use of bee hive products, is a great and natural way to ward off sickness, or, if you’re already not well, to make yourself feel a little better. The medicinal use of bee products has been practiced for centuries, as bees produce propolis, also referred to as nature’s penicillin, which has antibiotic, ant-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidizing qualities. Many products made from Propolis are available to Chinook Honey, including Hive Healer Honey and Royal Jelly Capsule. Call for more information.
Also located at the Chinook Honey Company is the Chinook Arch Meadery, which produces wine made with honey, resulting in an ancient concoction known as mead. Stop by for a taste!
