At the Mardi Gras set-up at Spanish Springs there was a local honey vendor. I don't remember which one it was, and only remember that the sign did in fact say Florida. I don't remember which town was written on the sign.

I'll probably bring some honey down from Connecticut when we make the final move this summer. The bees get some of their pollen from the herbs in my garden. The beekeeper is just around a mile and a half from my house. The typical range for honeybees is around 2 miles. Oregano blossom/lavender/clover honey - is amazing.

I have a friend in south Ocala that has his own honey. Send me an email and i'll get you his contact info. His honey is very good! I have some new hives, but no honey production...yet!

Brownwood Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Riverview. They set up across from Tommy Bahamas and are out of Lake Pannasoffkee. I use their Wildflower which is from local pollen.

I have a local honey. He has been with me for 56 years. Crazy about him.
