(Dubois, WY) – The family-owned and operated Wonderful Wyoming Honey is opening their very first storefront, the Honey House, in downtown Dubois.
The store will carry their signature grade “A” honey, a variety of bee merchandise, and educational information about bees including live observation hives.
The Honey House is located next to the Rustic Pine Tavern on Ramshorn and has a grand opening planned for Memorial Day weekend. They are currently open for very limited hours right now as part of a soft opening.
Wonderful Wyoming Honey is based in Crowheart and was founded in the 1930s. They are the only commercial beekeeper in the area and manage ~1,300 hives across the Upper Wind River Valley.
Kyle and Milt Miller are the 3rd and 2nd generation beekeepers of the family. They are currently busy checking the hives that have recently returned from wintering in California.
Opening a storefront has been something Kyle has wanted to do, shared Honey House manager Nicole. Their plans became more serious a few years ago and finally solidified last year.
Typically, they have only specialized in honey that they shipped from their home or sold at retail locations across the state. However, the Honey House has expanded their product offerings to include merchandise such as clothing, candles, and snacks among others.
In addition to merchandise, they are providing educational information about bees and the important role they play. They have information hand-outs, a live observation hive and more.
