Local, Raw Honey: Liquid Gold
In the U.S., the honey bee population is rapidly dwindling, posing a great risk to agriculture. In 2015, we committed to doing our part to help save the bees by raising our own here at Rustic Road Farm.
The results have been better than we even imagined. Our honey bees gather pollen from our crops, and return the favor by creating an incredibly delicious, healthy honey that tastes nothing like what you may have become accustomed to buying from your local grocer.
Research suggests that consuming locally produced, raw honey like what we produce at Rustic Road Farm may have the following health benefits:
- Reduction in seasonal allergies
- Weight loss
- Stronger immune system
- Better sleep
- Wound healing (used topically)
You can purchase honey at the Rustic Road Farm market. If you’d like to purchase a 5-lb. honey share for pick-up at the farm, see below.
