So, I've got horrible horrible allergies and I've heard that the best thing to do to combat it is to eat raw honey from local bees.. I've got no idea where to get it from, especially since that Farmer's Markets are a month or so away from opening up.. Any ideas where I can get local raw honey? I'm in the KOP area..

    In Bucks County, Bee Well sells raw honey. I know they go to the Wrightstown Farmers market which is going to start Aprill 11. Bee Well, Grace Covey. Local raw and pasteurized honey, honeycomb, maple syrup, maple sugar and beeswax candles. E-mail Grace at gcovey@comcast.net

        May I ask what allergies you may have?

          I've just started developing hardcore seasonal allergies. I just moved to the KOP area and it's sooo horrible. I'm trying to run outdoors b/c it's getting nicer, but I can't even breathe out there!

            Call whole foods in plymouth meeting.
            I just called them for you and they have RAW LOCAL Honey.
            I asked three times to confirm.

            Also, check out Two Gander Farm local honey.
            I bought some at a farmer's market in Bryn Mawr last summer and it was great. Here is the website:
            www.twoganderfarm.com

            Their website lists where you can find the honey at local stores.

            Let us know what works for you....

                I called Two Gander farm and they will be at Bryn Mawr farmers mkt at end of the month. I know they have Raw honey but I forgot to ask if they will have Raw honey at the market.

          I am actually looking for this currently right now (local raw honey). I saw that someone wrote that you can get this at the WF in Plymouth Meeting. Wasn't sure if the ones you pour yourself are considered raw local or not (I believe its NJ based). Just wanted to see if anyone else knows where I can find this elsewhere. I'm in the DelCo area, and driving is not a problem.

            The 320 Market Cafe in Swarthmore (and I think they have a location in Media) has "local" raw honey from Lancaster County. 610-328-7211 is the phone # for the Swarthmore location.

            I don't know what county it is but raw honey is sold at our Amish friends' farm in Cochranville Pa. (45 minute drive outside Philly) on Homer Street. Just look for sign on street corner and find the big white farm. :)

              I don't know if they have it in stock right now, but Morris Arboretum sells its own honey (from the hives on the Arboretum grounds) in their gift shop.
