This was discussed over the summer as a possible source of relief from allergies, and the topic came up again at work today (it seems like the pollen is flaring up again, it's that time of year for mountain cedar!).

As such, I was wondering if anyone knew of any sources for locally-produced honey?

Cheers! M2

As far as I know, there is no proof that honey helps with allergies. Is there some new study out that refutes this?

I buy Fowler's at this little store called Homestead Handcrafts. They only carry it at the one on Blanco (which is a real bi-atch to get to due to roadwork). It is a store that sells crafts, gifts, etc. in a "booth" format and Fowler's has a booth there. I have been trying it as a relief to allergies. I have them bad - allergic to just about anything that grows, year round. So far I really haven't noticed a difference but I only use it in my coffee in the morning. Maybe you have to use more often for it to help.

It is yummy tasting honey though.

I've used the local honey from Whole Foods (bulk) for a few years now...I'm not sure if it helps at all.I finally got some Cedar-X this year, and so far - NO CEDAR ALLERGIES. (crosses fingers)

I picked up some honey made in Llano at HEB... I don't know how close it has to be to qualify as local.
