What do you consider local honey?

I live in a pretty rural area. I found honey yesterday at our local natural store that is raw but it's from a bee farm that is about an hour away (roughly 45-60 miles). Would you consider that local?

The reason local honey is recommended is because its made with the plants and pollen in your area and strengthens your immune system against those allergens thus relieving allergies. So if the plant life is the same, then yes.

I have to travel two hours to get mine so ya I consider that local lol I sometimes wish that the guy that was in the same town still had honey bees but now where we get it from is in the area we plan to move to so it works out.

I buy mine from a cute little family that live in our neighboring town about 10 minutes away. I would definitely say within an hour is local.

Ours comes from a place within a mile or so, but yes 50 miles is still local unless there's a, significant difference in the vegitation(unlikely)

That is one of the reasons why I wanted raw was for the allergy reasons. Vegetation is pretty much the same. Thanks :)

I'm hoping that maybe by using honey more frequently I can cut back on the allergies that we deal with in our family.
