The honeybee is responsible for pollinating 130 different crops in the U.S, including fruits, vegetables and nuts. Most of the honey that is sold in a grocery store is labeled as honey, when it actually is not. Most of the honey that is sold contains harmful ingredients and does not contain pollen, a main ingredient of honey. This is why it is important to buy your honey from a local farm or natural food store to ensure that what you are buying is organic and all natural.


Not only does honey taste good, but it is also good for you! Natural honey can help restore your skin, promote healthy bacteria in your intestinal track, and help control allergies. Organic raw honey is a perfect favor for your wedding that people will enjoy and can use in a variety of ways.
