Local Honey for Southwest Florida

Allergies are rampant this year.
Many holistic practitioners recommend local honey to help combat those symptoms. Sort of nature’s “allergy shot” but instead of an injection, you just do a tablespoon or more of honey a day and allow the sweet nectar made from your local plants to do the job.  There are MANY healthy benefits of Local honey, here is where you can get some.

Today, I just wanted to provide some options for LOCAL honey in my area.

  1. I usually get mine from the local farmer’s market. There are a couple of different local vendors there, sorry I don’t have the name of the farms; the bottles are gone. I am currently using some made by a friend in Siesta Key.(not available to the public) I also have some given to me by a friend from Bonita Aunt Bee, LLC. PO Box 1942, Bonita Springs, FL 34133. Not sure where this one can be bought.

  2. Great news from my neighbor! Lee County Florida, in the last month, passed a regulation that allows bee keeping as a gardening activity. This means you can try your own hand at bee keeping (with guidance and help from professionals) AND that we may be finding more access to local honey from local gardeners!

    I am excited to see where this goes and where we begin seeing more honey sources popping up!
