September is National Honey Month! Did you know the different climate zones make Arizona the perfect state for year-round honey?

Each batch of honey has a different taste and texture because of different flowers blooming during different seasons and climates. Lighter colors are mild in flavor, and darker colors are more robust in flavor. 

Honey’s not just a kitchen staple, but it can also relieve allergies overtime. It's a natural cough suppressant, an energy booster and the perfect ingredient for your beauty routine. There are over 300 unique honey variations in the U.S. and a few are only found in Arizona!
