Local Honey in Farmer Market – Economics 3

Local honey in farmer market

We visited farmer market last week, there were plenty of local honey on the shelves. Currently hot season is busy time for bees for secretion sweeter substances from flower then to produce honey.

At least there are four region as well known areas of honey bee production in Louisiana:

- Baton Rouge
- Northern Louisiana’s
- New Orleans and nearby areas
- Southwestern Louisiana

We might know that honey is healthy foods due to its contain combinations of mineral, vitamins, enzymes and anti-oxidants.

Surprising facts for me that there are 4 different terms of honey sold in the farmer market:

- processed
- natural
- pure
- raw


Local brand sell raw honey

Natural honey is not processed such as not going through filtering and pasteurizing process.

I just repeat and remind myself that some benefit to consume natural honey are:
- improve our immune system
- better sleeping
- improve cholesterol
- lower blood pressure

In term of economy, honey bee is estimated to contribute about 24 billion US$ to American economy.

USA produce 163,000,000 pound (74,000 ton) honey and provide 212,000 jobs for beekeepers, and million jobs honey relate industries and marketing.

Do you like to consume honey? How often do you consume?

  1. I always have honey in the house. And we use it quite a bit too. I know its got many benefits but maybe I should start paying attention to the kind of honey it is.

    For sometime now, warm honey water has become our littlest one's cough syrup. :)

  3. I use the raw (biological) form quite regularly. This means that honey has not been processed and that the beekeeper has not used any pesticides or preservatives. Honey also works as a heart enhancer, because it improves the flow of the heart muscles.

  6. ...local means local only for honest producers. I have travelled along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina many times and have seem stands for "Sourwood" honey, the golden standard for honey in the area. A friend of mine told me that too often the honey is Sourwood in name only!

  7. We buy honey from a local farmer who sells his wildflower honey at an untended stand using the honour system for payment. Our main use of it is a teaspoon on porridge.

  10. Tanza, We always have honey in the house but we don't use it too much. It is always local honey though. The most famous honey here in East Tennessee is that which is made from the blossoms of the Sourwood Trees. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
