Bees have been a hot topic the last few years. Seems every other day you read about another species of pollinator going the way of the stegosaurus. We want to keep those little buggers going, as they are said to be responsible for the pollination of 1/3 of the world’s crops. This is one reason why you’ll notice our grocery aisle has an entire section devoted to local honey from all across our food shed. Local raw honey is great for your immune system, allergy relief, and is even proven to be a natural sleep aid. If this were a cheeseball newspaper, you can rest assured we would have written “now there’s something to buzz about” by now. But this is a co-op social media post, and we prefer to sting you with facts like this one: last year we sold 4,208 pounds of local and regional honey, which translates roughly into 138.864 less local and regional sneezes.
