A recent comment to our blog prompted this reply from our association's Vice President, Dan Whitney.  Worker Bee 
"The demand for honey has increased steadily for several decades, thanks to good promotion from the National Honey Board. Unfortunately, with the decreases in colony production,  number of colonies,  and a lack of new beekeepers,  the United States can only produce 1/2  of all honey consumed annually.  The difference must come from other sources.

In answer to your question;  if you want to be sure its pure, local, or MN honey, read the label.   Buy from a local producer.  Or look for the MN Grown label.  MN produces excellent table grade honey.  I am sure you will be pleased with a 100% Mn product.

Almost every town in Mn has a local beekeeper.   In a few months we should have a list of producers on this website.   Check back."
