Nearly 100 Years Ago

Orville Cox settled on a small piece of acreage in rural Idaho. Back then, homesteading meant farming, and farming required beekeeping to support the vitality of the crops.

Our great, great-grandfather

noticed his honeycombs were dripping with honey and the hives were outpacing his fields, so he set up a little roadside stand and begin selling some of his honey.

Soon Cox's Honey was born

and then, as now, the family maintains the same hands-on, artisanal philosophies that focus on flavor and preserving the inherent healthful benefits nature provides.
