Farm Families of MS: Honey | Restaurants
Eating locally produced honey has many health benefits including reducing allergies to local plants. The color and flavor of honey differ depending on the bees’ nectar source (the blossoms). In general, lighter colored honeys are mild in flavor, while darker honeys are usually more robust in flavor.
