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. As of 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. Please see below the list of strategies we employ to meet our sustainable business goals.
