In Dickinson, North Dakota, there is a local producer of honey, Ed’s Honey Company, that has been in business for more than fifty years. The easiest way to find and buy Ed’s Honey in Dickinson, is to go to one of the Family Fare grocery stores, and this local honey is there on the shelf with the other brands of non-local honey.
I am not interested in honey at all, I don’t care about honey, I only went looking for locally produced honey because it is supposed to contain small amounts of pollen from every plant growing in this area. Hence, taking a spoon full of locally produced honey every day, was supposed to be the same as taking allergy shots.
When I was in the Family Fare grocery store about one month ago, there was only one 5 lb jug of Ed’s Honey left. This was a lot of honey, but I didn’t care, I was glad to be able to find any at all. This honey was darker in color than what most people are probably used to seeing, it is more towards brown, and not golden or light in color.
I was only supposed to take one teaspoon full of it for my allergies, but I ate about one cup of it on the first day. This honey is very interesting and unique, to look at, pour, smell, and taste. It is the best honey that I have ever tasted. It is the most distinct, peculiar, unusual, and interesting thing that I have ever tasted. It is very, very strong, and potent, but not in an unpleasant way.
One of the reasons why this honey tastes different, is because it is made from the nectar of every flower growing in western North Dakota. These plants in western North Dakota, are probably different from the plants that grow in any other part of the world.
This honey probably tastes so strong, because it is 100% pure honey. I don’t know if this is “raw” honey or not. I don’t think that there is any processing done to it at all.
I would recommend to everyone living in western North Dakota, or passing through western North Dakota, to buy and try Ed’s Honey at least once. This honey is different than anything that you have tasted before.

Excellent idea and remedy. I have tried that honey and it’s delicious. People should always buy locally produced honey (IMO) for the reason you already described, and because the “cheap stuff” is often not even pure honey. Sometimes the cheap stuff has been cut with other products such as corn syrup. Sources say that the honey made in China was banned because it was so adulterated, that they were feeding the bees corn syrup to get them to produce more and faster. Then, they might turn around and label it “pure honey” anyway, devil in the details, if you will. I guess if a person can’t afford the better honey (like the one you’re writing about here), the crappy, impure honey would be better than starving. I wouldn’t buy the cheapo honey, even if I had to skimp in some other area to afford the good stuff.
I only bought this honey, because I was having such severe problems with allergies, otherwise, I would have continued to never buy honey, and not miss having it. However, once I tasted this locally produced honey, it was so uniquely strong and potent, so different, that I would recommend to anyone that they try this honey at least once.
I read about Ed’s Honey Company before I wrote this blog post, and I found out that Ed’s Honey Company exports most of the honey that they produce, to outside of this area. I think that they sell honey locally to Family Fare grocery stores only out of courtesy and public relations, not as a way to make much money. I believe that the amount that goes to the local Family Fare grocery stores sells out quickly, so if you see it on the shelf, you had better buy it, especially in winter, because the honey bees are taken to Texas in the winter to perform pollination on agricultural crops.
