We have a food co-op called Three Rivers Market that has really good, unpasteurized, full-strength honey. I get it there during the winter months when the farmers market is closed. Most of it is local, and they also have some Fair Trade brand raised elsewhere, but still excellent honey.
We use to live across the street from a man who raised bees, but he would not sell me his honey because he said he didn't have enough. I thought, Wow! His bees feed on all the clover and other wildflowers in our yard (we're not that great about mowing) and he can't spare to let me have an occasional jar even when I offer to pay him? I wonder how much honey he uses? LOL!

Fortunately I have a couple of good sources for local honey! I also occasionally buy it on my infrequent trips to Trader Joes. In a recent "honey test", they were one of the few places tested where ALL of the honey they were selling was actually pure honey, not fake or cut with fake stuff!

I take it for the same reason, Susan.

We can find locally grown honey every Saturday at our local farmer's market. It's raised by a couple about 4 miles up the road from us - so I can use it to ease allergies.
