Why Tropical Plants Mean Unique Flavor
As honey connoisseurs are well-aware, honey comes in distinct flavors influenced by the nectar and pollen a hive of bees collects. It means where honey is harvested makes a big difference in taste.
- Hawaii is a floral paradise with unique blooms in abundance
- More than 1,400 plant species are found in Oahu and the Big Island
- Strategically located hives; adjacent to organic farms and rainforests
We've developed Rainbow Bees' honey products to produce the best Hawaii honey and place our 35 hive yards in locations that make a difference. It allows us to produce light, sweet products and others with darker, richer flavors – giving you options and choices to suit your taste.
Our Macadamia Nut and ʻŌhiʻa Lehua honey are Hawaiian specialties are sought-after and delicious, and our multi-floral tropical honey wins awards from expert taste testers. Each has different uses and is entirely distinct from any factory-farmed grocery store honey.

Honey in Hawaii: A History-Making Story
Our philosophy is "Honey for Everyone," and it's why we produce several uniquely distinct products.
Honey bees have a rich, though somewhat recent, history in Oahu. Bees were introduced to Hawaii in 1857 by William Buck, who shipped his bees from San Jose to Honolulu. These honey bees created feral hives and thrived in Hawaii's lush landscape.
As more and more people populated the islands, the interest in beekeeping grew. The large-scale planting of macadamia trees also helped the bee industry, as the nectar of the blossoms was popular with the bees.
Since those early days, beekeepers like us have placed and tended hive yards in many locations around Oahu and the Big Island, each one selected for its potential to produce delicious raw honey.
How is Raw Honey Better?
Raw honey to us means unprocessed and 100 percent natural. We want as little possible to happen between the bee and you. Rainbow Bees honey is lightly filtered a single time to remove hive debris, and that's it. You receive only what the bees produce.
- Is our honey organic?
- How is organic honey produced?
The answers are we place as many hives as possible near organic farms and untended areas where no chemical pesticides and fertilizers are applied. We prefer for our bees to visit organic flowers.
However, bees fly free and pollinate an area as wide as two miles. Ensuring that every flower they contact is organically raised is a goal we strive for, but we prefer to be 100% transparent about the realities.
Is Your Honey Considered a Gourmet Food?
The quality and taste of Rainbow Bees Hawaiian honey products easily meet gourmet standards, but our prices are reasonable. It's also easy to enjoy our honey thanks to its convenient pouch and tiki bottle packaging.
We believe fresh, 100% natural products should be affordable and accessible for everyone.
We're constantly challenging ourselves to do better, and the development of easy-to-carry pouch packing is an excellent example. Our honey pouches are easy to carry to work, on picnics, on camping trips, or wherever you go. Everything we do has convenience and enjoyment in mind.
