Henry’s Humdingers Honey

Food News

Henry Miller is a 16-year-old with a lot of ambition and creativity. His name may sound familiar after his recent appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank where he was offered $300,000 for a 75% share of his raw honey company. In the end, Henry ended up refusing the offer in order to maintain his majority share of the business and keep the focus on the bees. Henry’s Humdinger honey is raw, all natural spicy honey produced up in Deming, WA.

Henry started his honey spicing career after his 11th birthday when he convinced his mom to get him a beehive after sitting next to a beekeeper on a plane ride. After learning to keep bees, Henry ended up with so much sweet honey he didn’t know what to do with it so he started experimenting by adding spices to make a zesty combination of sweet and spicy.

It’s always been about the bees for Henry and he’s been a driving force in bringing awareness to Colony Collapse Disorder, a phenomena where honeybees from a hive colony suddenly disappear. This issue is extremely destructive to many food sources that rely on pollination. In order to bring awareness about the issue of Colony Collapse Disorder, Henry has a few easy tips to help the bee population:

  1. Plant flowers instead of grass. Flowers provide food for bees and encourage pollination.
  2. Do not destroy honeybee hives. If a hive is a nuisance, hire someone to safely remove it.
  3. Donate to the Foundation of the Preservation of Honey Bees at http://www.abfnet.org.
