Fun fact, North and South Dakota are the leaders in USA honey production! North Dakota wins the top spot. Bees travel around 2.5 miles from the hive. This year I started a vegetable and cut flower garden and loved seeing the bees buzz around. I was also inspired by the colorful beehive boxes placed along the gravel roads. A favorite of mine is the raw honey gathered and bottled by Quail Honey in Brandt, South Dakota.
