Just 10 miles North of Durango stands a 4th-generation company that was founded in the 1920’s called Honeyville.
Being nestled in the San Juan Mountains, Durango is the perfect attraction for a weekend getaway with the kids or skiing at the local resorts with friends. The experience of Durango does not stop in town. Just 10 miles North stands a 4th-generation company that was founded in the 1920’s called Honeyville. Honeyville produces and provides honey products ranging from honey wines to gourmet whipped honeys and jams that you can sample while in the store. The philosophy of Honeyville is simple: Provide high quality products to customers all made with Colorado local honeys. At the store kids eyes light up when viewing the bees making honey and the queen bee roaming about her glass hive.
In 2014 Honeyville underwent construction to build a new facility for their loyal customers. Outgrowing their old building, Honeyville wanted to ensure the customer came first and to give them an experience they will not forget. Not only can you view bees, but you can see the entire production line making your favorite Honeyville products.
