Hummingbird Wholesale started in 1972 as Honey Heaven, a specialty honey shop in Eugene. In 1981 it was purchased and the business focus changed to wholesale products. Hummingbird Wholesale has grown in many ways over the years but it remains a small, family-owned and operated business and a positive force for change in the food industry. Their Farm Liaison, James Henderson, is an Oregon State graduate who spends his time growing the organic grain industry and providing financial sustainability for farmers in Oregon. Hummingbird Wholesale has worked closely with Pat Hayes, professor of Barley Breeding & Products over the years and has both grown and sold his products. This specialty shop also carries many grains, beans, flours and other products grown by Oregon State alumni.
