Holmestead Berry Blossom Honey Is Back!

Yes! We robbed the bee hives last week and we now have our delicious honey available again. But it won’t last long. Get it while it last. We have pints, quarts, and some with the honeycomb in the jar. Local honey is a great way to fight allergies and sinus issues.
