Honeyville Durango
Honeyville Colorado - "Honey Specialties since 1918"

Honeyville is located just a few miles south of Tamarron Resort. They are one of Durango's most unique stores, with a rich history that begins back in the 1920's.

Their retail outlet includes a myriad of flavored honeys, whipped honeys, jams & jellies, syrups, sauces & toppings along with a gift shop that sells a variety of gift boxes, including: "Honeyville Delights Basket", "Colorado Sweets Basket", "Honey Do BBQ" and their famous "Taste of Durango Gift Box."

They have a wonderful online store where you can view all of their offerings, send gifts to your friends, or order something for home delivery.

Below is their story.

Welcome to Honeyville, home of Colorado made specialty honeys, honey jams, jellies and sauces. Our rich, thick, mountain wildflower honey is so flavorful, it is no wonder that our customers tell us it is the best honey in the world.

The story begins in the 1920's when Vernon Culhane removed some honey bees from a buzzing tree near his house to start his own hive.   He soon discovered that the honey his bees were producing was the best honey he had ever tasted!  So it began and word got around that Vernon was producing wonderful honey in the Durango area. Earning the title, "The Falfa Honey Man", Vernon would take the farm's flatbed pickup to Rio Grande Land in downtown Durango where the train station is located and locals would fill their containers straight from the truck.  Later, families would come to the Honey House located on the Florida Mesa east of Durango to fill their jars with honey.  This would often be included with a tour of the honey farm, a hand laid brick building on the original homestead where Vernon's Irish father resided. What started as a hobby for Vernon had become a thriving honey business.  But Honey by itself wasn't enough – he soon started experimenting with the possibilities of what else could be done with the honey his bees were producing.   He realized he could use his honey to enhance Jams and Jellies as well as creating Honeyville's flagship product – Cinnamon Whipped Honey.  A true entrepreneur, Vernon also started cultivating Chokecherry trees in his own backyard and perfected a honey enhanced recipe that is now our famous Wild Chokecherry Jelly.
Today, Honeyville still holds the values and principles started by Vernon by offering nature's sweet nectar to families who visit the Honeyville factory store as well as those loyal online families.   Honeyville has since outgrown the honey supply located around Durango, so we have branched out to other family beekeepers all located in the Rocky Mountains, gathering honey from the same flowers as the Durango region to help supply the demand.  All of the honey goes through a rigorous quality control before ever making it into our warehouse.  But we didn't stop there – we have continued the quest for superior, natural new exciting products, all honey enhanced of course! Bee on the lookout for upcoming products.

The history of Honeyville is just like the product, thick, rich and flavorful.  Some of the family beehives are still located on the same meadows and mountain hillsides where the distant view of the majestic La Plata Mountains helps the bees enjoy their job of collecting  nature's sweet nectar.  Unknowing of the ever changing world around them, they continue to bring the same quality high altitude honey to their hives as they have for over 90 years.

Special thanks to the families who have been enjoying Honeyville honeys since our first jar was bottled in 1918, and to the Colorado and Rocky Mountain beekeepers who help make this honey so delicious!

James Ranch
The James Ranch Market

While the James Ranch Market is technically not located in Downtown Durango, we highly recommend a visit. It's just a few minutes south of Tamarron Resort.

James Ranch is ten miles north of Durango, Colorado in the beautiful Animas River Valley. Here, you will find 400 acres of high altitude, irrigated pastures, crystal clear flowing water, 100% grass fed and finished beef cattle, grazing Jersey milk cows, a spruce tree nursery, an organic vegetable and flower garden, and busy families who utilize organic growing practices in the day-to-day operation of the ranch and their enterprises.

James ranch offers a variety of farm-fresh, organic products for your family, including:

• Grass-Finished Beef
• Artisan Cheese
• Whey-Good Pork
• Raw Milk

• Free-Range Chickens
• Farm Fresh Eggs
• Trees

There’s no better place to purchase all our products then at our Ranch Market and here is why:

  • Coming to our Ranch Market offers the rare opportunity to buy your food directly from the source and see where it was grown or raised.
  • It is open daily between 11am and 7pm so you can get fresh eggs and morning harvested vegetables every week day (June through October).
  • Watch cheese being made by Artisan Cheese Maker, Dan James and sample the different varieties.  (Tuesdays and Thursdays)
  • Meet and greet our young goats that love attention and a treat or two (we provide).
  • Ask questions directly to those that produce your food and get an answer.
  • Observe the progress of vegetables growing in the gardens.
  • Sit on a picnic bench outside the market to enjoy the view of the red cliffs, take in the ranch surroundings and maybe see some wildlife too.

We’re easy to find.  Just take Highway 550 north about 11 miles and take the second right after Honeyville at the James Ranch entrance.

Summer hours: 11 to 7 Monday through Saturday from the Friday of Memorial Day weekend through the second week of October.
Winter hours: 11 to 5 Saturdays only from the third Saturday of October to Memorial Day weekend.

We look forward to seeing you!
