It wasn’t long ago that I was having a conversation with a friend of mine at the pool and I saved a bee from drowning. We watched as he dried off a bit and sunned himself up in preparation to take flight. We finished a few beers and before you know it the lil guy had taken off headed west into the sunset. We started talking about bees and how recently their population has been on the decline. And how important they are to agriculture and in the long run, us. One of those “damn! we as a species suck” chats… I came across this article and wanted to share…It gives me hope living here in NorCal. As for the rest of the country….not so much!

*A tip for allergy sufferers….get some local honey and eat it up. The bees milk local flowers and thus ingesting their honey introduces your system to the local pollen….Thanks Bees!

  1. Good article. Thanks for sharing. I prefer local honey too. Esp Marshall Farm brand. Their SF one tastes really sweet. I don’t know if there’s other local honey seller beside them though. Maybe you can write about that next? 🙂

  2. There is a guy at the Santa Rosa Farmers Market that sells local honey and honeycombs. I also know that there is Cloverdale Honey that is really good. Have you ever tried cheese and honey? I got the idea from the Palace Hotel Sunday brunch…Humboldt fog bleu cheese and a Sonoma honey…really tasty…wash it down with a bottomless mimosa!

    • No, I have never tried honey and cheese. Oh, Palace hotel brunch w/ mimosa!…you know how to party! Lol. I went there for tea a while ago. Brunch sounds great-
