Welcome to The Barreled Bee, LLC where I bring all the goodness of barrel-aging to honey. The Barreled Bee, LLC is my small Portland company where I produce small batch barrel-aged honey. My first barrel of honey was released in 2017 and I’ve been slowly releasing barrel-aged honey and honey products since.
My name is Lee Hedgmon and I work as a distiller for a small local distillery. I discovered my passion for honey years ago when I made my first batch of mead, and over the years I’ve developed both food and homebrew recipes that have incorporated honey in them. The Barreled Bee, LLC started out as an idea, grew into a small batch project before I launched into building a business. I look forward to sharing ideas and recipes for my barrel-aged honey as well as new products and honey accessories with the growing community of honey appreciators.
Head on over to my shop page and check out the available products.
2019 is going to be an exciting time for me as I work to expand into my own production facility, collaborate with amazing local food producers to create new products. Join me on my journey as I expand my knowledge on how to keep bees and work to open up opportunities for more people of color to learn about urban beekeeping.
You can follow me on instagram, @thebarreledbee and on my Facebook. You can also email me at [email protected] with questions, comments, and great stories of what you have made with your honey.
Thank you for your support and stay sweet!
