Local Sources of Honey

  • B&K Honey of Hesperia For a few years now, we have purchased honey from B&K Honey. We started with a few smaller jars the first year. We went through the jars so quickly that the second year, they sold us three HUGE jars to get through until the next season.
  • Tri County Feeds in Montague Michigan carries honey from Urban Farmstead in Montague Michigan. Stop in for some dogfood or gardening supplies, leave with some delicious local honey.
  • The General Store located in Whitehall, Michigan carries honey from Urban Farmstead in Montague, Michigan.
  • Hidden Creek– Stop by Hidden Creek for honey, eggs, handmade soaps, seasonal veggies, flowers, and more. Contact them for local meat as well.
  • Crisp Country Acres– Stop by their farm store in Holland, Michigan, or find them at a local farmers market, like the Muskegon Farmer’s Market. They offer seasonal produce, meats, eggs, maple syrup, honey, cheese, and even a variety of CSA programs.
  • Reid’s Gourmet- Raw Michigan honey sold through Reid’s Gourmet in Holland, Michigan. Reid’s Gourmet products are also sold through Michigan Pantry.
  • Country Dairy– When you stop off for some cheese, ice cream and milk, make sure to pick up some honey from Lake Effect Apiaries.

Recipes Using Honey

  • Homemade Granola- This recipe from 100 Days of Real Food is my go to and has been for years. Why mess with a good thing? It’s a versatile recipe. You can make this recipe nut free. Or keep the nuts and add the nuts you have on hand. I get my oats in bulk from the Amish store in Fremont.
