it may not bee what you think

this is a small bottle of honey
that a friend harvested this year from his hive
its less than a month old
sort of a wild taste
the honey takes on some of the taste of whatever
pollen the bees are harvesting
this time of year its lots of wildflowers and trees
and shrubs and bushes

now this honey is all local
i know its 100% pure honey

i have been a beekeeper for a year now
only got stung twice
once on the rt cheek
once on the lip
now that one hurt real bad
like a severe brain freeze that wont go away

i havent harvested any honey yet
i know when i do that it will be
pure honey
no additives
all organic

before i had bees
my wife she likes honey in the morning with her breakfast
i would go to the store
being cheap like i am
im always looking to save money
i would go through the honey section
find the cheapest honey
buy it
bring it home
she would eat it
now since im an official honey beekeeper
i know
that that cheap honey i bought
probably had a lot of corn syrup in it
the label just didnt have it on the list of ingredients
thats why the honey is so cheap
they water it down with corn syrup
in some cases they actually use water to water down the honey
they usually china also use chemicals and antibiotics that are banned
in the united states
none of this stuff will be on the label

apparently china is bad about doing this
they sell it to larger honey selling companies in other foreign countries
who sell it to large grocery chains here in the us
who sells it to cheap folks like me trying to save a buck
who might just be able to save even more money
if he would just go ahead and buy corn syrup

now i know better
i know the difference in the flavor and the nutrition
i buy from a local honey person
if i am in the grocery store
i buy honey that is from a local honey farm
known to produce pure honey

that is
until i can harvest my honey
i will add honey to my local produce list from
the country n

she likes the wild native hone better
its healthier for you

dont you be fooled
