History of Honeyville Honey, LLC
In 1914, William S. Ellis came to Honeyville to establish a bee business for Reuben T. Rhees who taught him about bee keeping. In 1925 he established a bee business of his own, He built up his business until he had about 1,000 hives/colonies divided into 15 bee yards along the Bear and the Malad Rivers. When William died, His wife Mary Ward Ellis had to decide whether to sell the bees or to keep them, After much thought Mary decided to keep the bees to give her grandchildren a way to earn money. In 1973 Mary Elizabeth Ellis Anderson, and her husband Louis Anderson moved from California to Honeyville to help Mary Elizabeth's mother with the bee business. They allowed their seven children and grandchildren to help in the bee business starting when they were 8 years old, The boys gradually learned the business until they were old enough to take full responsibility of the business.
