Buffalo River Honey Company
We feature the finest, all-natural wilderness flower honey that money can buy. Our hives are
located in the pristine Upper Buffalo River Area that encompasses two wilderness areas and
thousands of acres of untouched woodlands.

We operate only 100 hives. Our bees harvest nectar from wildflowers untouched by chemical
pesticides. Each year our honey, like fine wine, varies according to the flower blooms and the
impact of the seasons. One thing remains constant, the character of our honey is unlike any you
have ever tasted. You have not tasted pure wild honey until you taste our honey.

We honor and practice our ancient craft much as bee keepers have across the centuries. Our
bees have interbred with wild strains. We avoid chemicals and manage pests with essential oils.

Tasting is believing. All natural, totally wild honey is a revelation. From the first explosion of the
floral scents and tastes, to the finishing notes of our honey, it is an unparalleled experience of
complexity and nuance. The key is staying all natural, then the floral gifts of our pristine
wilderness areas come through.

Buffalo River honey is the best.  Not just because of its wonderfully
natural taste but also because of the pristine area from which Eddie’s
bees collect their nectar and pollen: the watershed of the upper
Buffalo River in Arkansas’ Boston Mountains. 

We use Buffalo River Honey at home and we also sell and serve it in
our bakery/café, Neighbor’s Mill Bakery & Café in Harrison AR. 
Once they’ve tried it our customers come back for more!

Buffalo River Wildflowers
Mountain Wildflower
Mountain wildflowers are the secret to honey of the very highest standard. Our bees harvest nectar and pollen from these pristine sources rather than mono culture field crops laden with pesticides.

The difference is obvious from the first taste. The health benefits of this honey are legendary.

" Discovering a fine delicious PURE honey is akin to discovering a rare fine wine. If our palates are privy enough in life to cross paths with special delicacies that only a Higher Power could provide. ... then most of the time those delicacies are only able to be manufactured in small quantities due to the delicate nature of their very being. My personal palate has been privy to a few good wines but only one rare delicate PURE honey good enough to be called Buffalo River Honey Company PURE honey.

Eddie and Carla Watkins and their sweet twin girls are members of a shrinking number of apiary managers who house, feed, nurture, and “baby” their bees winter, summer, spring and fall. They are gracious, gentle souls who dedicate a large portion of their time to the well being of the creators that produce such fine PURE honeys. I use the plural because with each season brings on an individual flavor. The gorgeous golden butter color and the distinct flavor of each season mean you will have a variety of tastes with each harvest. The beautiful Buffalo National River area and its awesome greenery and wildflowers are perfect homes for Eddie’s pampered bees.

My only hesitation in writing this recommendation is the fact that the very nature of the PURE honey production business lends itself to VERY limited quantities of each season’s sling. My only advice is . . . get it while you can."

" The high Ozarks of Newton County produce the purist floral bloom in America.  Eddie Watkins' bees capture the essence of this unpolluted wilderness and turn in into the finest honey on earth, a rare honey beyond words."

"We thought we knew what honey tasted like until we experienced your spectacular honey. From the first taste, our senses were bombarded by scents and tastes we would never have imagined possible.

We did not realize that the honey we have been using was cut or maybe the result of mass production processes. Now we know the difference.

Anyone who tastes your honey will always want a jar on the shelf. You can taste the purity and delicacy absent in mass produced honey.

Thank you for caring enough to practice the art of bee keeping with the centuries old traditions of purity and a close relationship to nature."
