This might sound a bit off of the wall, but we're moving out to Vegas in early April and we were wondering if there are any online sites/stores that offer local honey from the Las Vegas area?

We both (gf and I) both have allergies and it's said that eating local honey in your area does help offset some alleriges.

TIA!

Go to Las Vegas Honeys and see if what they have will work for you.

in my experience in the SW, eating local honey does have some benefits w/r to allergies. that being said (and i don't know this of LV, but it sure was true for NM) depending on the time of year, the allergens can be pretty 'thick', and there might be some new stuff out here to sneeze at. might be a good idea to start a thread asking locals about what to expect and preventative maintenance, etc. (although this thread might suffice for that)

I dont know about Southern Nevada but I buy a great alfalfa honey from MacDougall Farms out of Lovelock. It is sold in the Scolaries grocery store chain up here in Northern Nevada. I am curious about what types of honey come out of Southern Nevada.

Ironically enough, I had never heard this before last night. I was watching something on food network and (I believe it was Alton Brown) said that local honey can cure some allergies.. never head it before.

I can't picture Vegas being a big honey producer... come to think of it I dont think I've even seen many bees out there... maybe honey from California would do the trick....???

JFK, don't even go there
