The sign of a quality grocery store is a place that carries local products, especially honey! I was looking for some local honey to give to my wife to help her with her allergies (read all about honey and seasonal allergies). I was at Hiller’s in Ann Arbor, MI and I found some jars of Jodi Bee Wildflower Honey. I thought it would be the perfect choice. This honey was collected by beekeepers in Clarkston, Michigan, which isn’t too far from my home outside of Ann Arbor. The proprietors of Jodi Bee Honey Farm are Lloyd and Judy Schmaltz. They began with one hive in 1982 and have expanded to 100. (Click here to read how they got their start). They sell many different honey products including varietal honeys (Star Thistle, Wildflower, and Buckwheat), honey mustard, dips, candles, soaps, and more.
As for the wildflower honey I bought, it was a great multi purpose honey. It has a nice mild, floral flavor. It’s a quality honey better than the generic store brand stuff most people by at the store. And I think it helped with my wife’s allergies as after a couple days of eating it, she was feeling better.
