Roadside Stalls With Honey

roadside stall honey

Delicious raw honey straight from the producer. Who doesn’t want that? Not me. (Okay, weird double-negative there. For clarity, I DO want fresh honey direct from the producer. I have a cupboard of the stuff because I can’t stop buying it.)

Below are a list of roadside stalls and farm shops that sell honey. For some, it’s the entire aim of the stall. For others, it’s part of their offerings. Not all of them are selling their own honey but those who aren’t (like Freeman’s Organic Farm) have a close connection to the producer. 

Enjoy! I hope you find some delicious honey near you. 

Some honey trivia

Honey is the only natural edible product that consists of all the substances necessary to sustain life, including vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and water. It’s also the only natural edible product that contains pinocembrin that improves brain functioning. Honey stored in airtight containers never spoils.

To make half a kilo of honey, the bees in the colony must visit 2 million flowers. A single bee can produce 1 tablespoon of honey in its lifetime.

Honey has antibacterial, antifungal, and antioxidants activities that make it ideal for treating wounds.

Honey provides energy over a longer duration before or after a workout. Bees not only collecting pollen to produce honey, but also pollinate flowers and crops that produce nearly 1/3 of all food.

Raw honey has unique health and nutritional profits that you might not be aware of.

There are more than 300 different types of honey, each with a unique flavor, taste and color depending on flowers where the bees collect nectar, but also on a climate, season and race of the bee.

Honey is 80% sugars and 20% water. The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by man. A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour, hence it can cover large distances for foraging.

To make half a kilo of honey it would take 556 workers and 2 million flowers. Honey never spoils.

Due to the high level of natural sugars in honey, it acts as a preservative.
