Not only do bees work hard all day to pollinate our flowers, trees, fruits and vegetables, but – of course – they make honey while doing it! There’s nothing like fresh, high-quality local honey to make your baking, desserts and toast sing! And there are a healthy number of local pure honey producers in our area. Here are a few to discover:
