Bee Local

Portland, Oregon-based Bee Local doesn’t jar honey from just one local hive. Founder Damian Magista focuses on urban neighborhood-specific, artisan varieties that reflect the plants and forage available in each area.

Bee Local’s bees currently buzz around Portland farmlands and rooftops, Oregon’s Mount Hood and the larger Willamette Valley, among farther locales.
