Just north of our home is an large orchard and apiary (home for honey bees)—the Sailing S Orchard and Apiary. The farm has a small shed (known as the 'Honey House”) next to the road selling pints and quarts of local honey. Purchases are on the honor system and you return the empty jar when your honey is gone.
We love buying locally grown, raw honey. Once you taste high-quality, local, unpasteurized honey you will not buy syrupy, grocery-store honey in the little bear bottles again. Not only is it delicious, but local honey contains the immune stimulating properties needed for your body to adapt to its environment (helps alleviate allergies).
