I have regularly thought that raw honey was expensive, and though I understand the reason for the cost, it was something that I was regularly aware of, the price did not prevent myself and others from purchasing the honey because I feel that honey has some good health benefits; It is an antibacterial agent, it’s rich in antioxidants, may improve heart health, may help with the symptoms of a cold, and so much moreâ€¦ So, of course, it is beneficial to purchase honey just for the benefits alone; Even though I guess the raw honey that I purchase from the farmer’s market is expensive, there is another honey on the market that is many times or more expensive than the honey that I buy on a usual basis.
This honey comes from another country, and it has higher levels of antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties than the local honey that I buy, but plus, this honey is rare and accounts for 1% of the honey produced each year. Additionally, it can only be found in this 1 section of the world. Also, the honey is easily tough to harvest because there is only a 2 to 6 month window where the plant that it is harvested from blooms. So, with all these benefits plus difficulty in producing this honey, it makes sense that it is the most expensive honey on the market. Personally, I won’t be purchasing that honey any time soon, but I will spend the extra currency to purchase raw locally grown honey at our city farmer’s market.
