I try to buy local honey whenever we travel, so good!

Evidently this local farmer came into the store my Dh works at. I was just thinking of buying honey but those small little bear bottles are very pricey so I skipped it. This is a good sized jar, and plus its not that refined crap at the store.

Lucky you! Lots of honey isn't honey, weird. Unless you buy local, it's not certain what you will get. Apparently, China is a honey broker, and will mix it with whatever.

I guess I'm a collector of honey, have some from TN, MN, WI, and my fave, Mexico. Unless it's local, not sure I want it.

If I had my own land and could definitely keep the bees away from my Dh (he is allergic) then I'd love to raise bees for honey myself. It's a life long dream to have a mini farm where I can homestead. :)

I would love to have an apiary. We're lucky to still have wild bees here. Friends in other states haven't seen bees for some time.

It was about $5 per jar. It's a mason jar (small one) like you'd buy for canning. Not sure how many oz they hold. Maybe 8 or 10?

That's a good price. I saw some local honey at a welcome center for $18!

Yikes! No it wouldn't sell for that price here. We're in the poorest county in Ohio. No one can afford it. lol
