Local Clemmons NC Honey




As I was driving home from my friends house today in Clemmons North Carolina I saw a sign for local honey, yep you know me well had to stop and get some.



Heres the lovely bee keeper he started his hives 3 years ago when someone from his church offered him bees! He figured why not he was retired. He states that he is getting more each year but that it's hard work and hot:-)


I was intrigued by the difference in the color he said the darker one is made from spring blooms on the poplar trees. The lighter local flowers, he has a beautiful yard full of them ;-)



His pretty yard the bees live behind the barn


Pretty country roads



Yummy honey and butter toast, our daughter loved it,

Local folks here is his details go get you some -

  3. This is just the kind of thing I do, stop for local food products. My brother in law raises bees as a hobby. He loves it. I can't imagine buying store bought honey anymore-e raw honey is just so good.

    Thanks for sharing.Velva

  6. It would be lovely to have the opportunity to buy honey straight from a farmer. I love how you served it on a Winnie the Pooh plate.

  7. Yep, I would have had to stop too. I'm glad to know what makes some honeys darker than others. Fun Rebecca.

  10. Local honey is great for people with allergies too! The bees make a natural antihistamine for the local blooms so the rule is a spoonful of local honey a day keeps the sneezes away :)
