We have been here many times over the years and I keep coming back for the cinnamon honey. I think it is a little pricey for the product but supporting a local business is what it's all about.

They have a great bee exhibit and a huge selection of honey and honey related products. Everyone in the shop has a passion for Bees and loves to educate you!! The Mead tasting was an eye opener and fun.
