Where To Find Local Honey

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about the benefits of "local honey."

Also called beekeeper’s honey, raw honey, or pure honey, local honey is less processed and filtered -- creating a product that maintains its vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that tastes great and is good for you.

Even better: Living in the central NC region means we have an abundance of options for buying local honey -- and none of them are the grocery store. Our area has a few "high-hobby, borderline commercial volume" beekeepers," says Charles Fleming, president of the Harnett County Beekeepers' Association.

But, note: Locally grown honey is somewhat seasonal and it’s a fast seller. Get it while the getting's good, Fleming says. Honey season is approaching

Next time you need a hit of the sweet stuff, turn to these sources instead:

Lee County
Harnett County
Chatham County
Moore County
Have we missed a local honey hot spot? Send it in so that we can add it to the list.

    Thanks for the reminder and guide to honey !
    My husband used to "keep" bees and we always had honey.
    Forgotten how much I miss it and do not like store bought honey.
    Walked up to Carolina Artists Colony and they have a good selection.
