What’s the Buzz about?

September is National Honey Month.

Eating local honey sustains local beekeepers who care for our crop of buzzing bees.

Bees are super pollinators, transferring pollen from plant to plant, thus fertilizing the plants and enabling them to bear fruit. In fact, about one-third of the U.S. diet is derived from insect-pollinated plants and honey bees are responsible for about 80 percent of that process!

Enjoying local honey keeps your local bee population healthy, contributes to a healthy ag system, keeps your dollars in the Valley, and maintains our beautiful landscape!  It tastes great too!
