Owner, Anne Smith, began working at Pike Place Market as a Sales Agent and Market Manager for the company, Growing Washington. In 2008, she began working with her first two beehives, one in the back of her Capitol Hill apartment and one in her best friend's backyard in Georgetown Seattle.
The following spring, Anne was invited to move to Whatcom County, outside of Bellingham, Washington to assist Growing Washington as a Pollinator. Alongside this change in scenery, Anne began to grow her amount of beehives exponentially and honey production soared.
By 2010, Sunny Honey Company was born out of a Box of Bees and a Dream. We began selling our locally produced honey at Pike Place Market and all around the State of Washington, including the Shoreline, Ballard, and Mercer Island Farmer's Markets, for 4 years.
In 2014, the Pike Place Market Management took notice of Sunny Honey Company and appointed us into our current permanent storefront. We are located under the Big Clock, behind the Pig's Tail, and right next to where they throw the fish!
