Our Story

Our bees roam the vast, high-mountain forage lands of Idaho, Montana and Western Wyoming to produce a sunny-colored Clover Honey with a delicate, mildly sweet flavor. Our Honey comes to you as if “Mother Nature Bottled it Herself”, retaining all the delicate vitamins, pollen, propolis and live enzymes with no artificial colors, flavors or filler ingredients like fructose, agave, or corn syrup. Our Honey has no chemicals, additives, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, or pollutants and has not been cooked, pasteurized, altered, or modified in any way.  

At Cox’s Honey, we believe the best honey is raw, unfiltered honey. That belief guides us as we harvest the honey from our own hives and throughout the packaging process. We handcraft our premium raw, unfiltered honey using responsible practices to ensure quality and purity from the hive to your table.
 

A Family Business

Cox’s Honey has a rich and honored history. Delaun Mills Cox started the bee business about 1880 with a few colonies of bees in Orderville, Utah. Thirty-three years later he came to Shelley, Idaho and continued his beekeeping hobby. In 1925 his son Orville S. Cox took over the bee business. Over time, Orville established his honey as a benchmark in superiority and purity. He marketed his honey under the trade name of “Cox Honey Farms.” Through a unique process, he created “Delicious Creamed Honey” which is recognized all over the nation as one of the best flavored and most firm textured honey products in the United States. With nothing added or taken away from nature’s finest sweet Orville created a high-quality brand with loyal consumers.

In 1970, Orville involved his sons Roy and Merrill, later joined by a grandson, Terry Brunson. They have worked hard for over 30 years to continue to bring consumers nature’s own sweetener with all its natural, pure, raw goodness.

Today, like their fathers before, Brent, Brian and Kendall, joined by Adam French have a firm commitment to not give in to market pressure by adding flavors or filler ingredients like fructose, agave, or corn syrup. They continue the “Cox Honey” tradition to bring consumers natural, pure, raw honey “As if Mother Nature Bottled it Herself.”
