There is nothing like the taste of local honey, the flavors of local blooms of flowers, fruits, trees, herbs and vegetables is extremely different from the flavor found in nationally distributed honey.
- While National Brands strive for a consistent flavor, not only from batch to batch but from year to year, local honey will reflect the seasons and years, similar to a fine wine.
- While National Brands may process the honey to reduce granulation, many locally produced honey may just be filtered or strained to assure the highest quality of flavor and antioxidants.
- While National Brands may combine honey from all over the US and the world, most locally produced honey is generated from a small geographic area and reflects the plants from that area.
