Fresh Honey

  • 7

Where is the best place to purchase fresh honey. I understand it is best to get from a beekeeper. I absolutely love the greek honey and I was wondering what was comparable to that in the US.

      I definitely second buying it local. Not only will it taste fantastic, you'll be supporting local beekeepers :), AND you'll be getting all the health benefits of local honey. When I first moved back up to CT from DC, I developed some icky seasonal allergies. Some friends recommended adding some local honey into my diet, and lo and behold! My allergies disappeared! woohoo! Where abouts do you live?

      A good site to start with: http://www.honeylocator.com/locator/f...

          Devil's River honey is what I've been buying lately. I get it at my local farmer's market (like scoutmaster suggests). I've never had Red Bee, it's at the other end of the state.
