Resurrecting this thread, rather than starting a new one.

In most of the continental US, honey bees produce over half of their honey before the summer heat sets in, so April and May are prime production months. If you stock up on honey, this is a good time to do it.

As I mentioned before, eating raw honey (a couple spoonfuls a day), produced by bees that are exposed to the same pollens you are, or will be, is a protective measure against some allergies.

(For preppers, there are a multitude of other reasons to stock up.)

Since this thread is about locally grown (more than just honey):

My local fruit (and other stuff) market has strawberries,
grown in Cabot (about 10 miles outside Little Rock).

Says she expects local Blueberries in about a month.

(Local vender is Friend's Orchard. Apparently her last name
is "Friend" and they have two stands, one is about a mile South
of Harrison and the other is about a mile W of Mountain Home.)

Yes, the local blueberries are wonderful. I made lots of blueberry jam last year when they were in season. The local nectarines are good too. We have a farmer's market twice a week where local farmers sell their stuff and it's some of the best you can get. Interesting about the honey and allergies. My honey is local so I'll have to remember to eat a spoon or two daily.
