The Johnston Honey family is proud to offer you organically farmed honey. This honey is produced by Minnesota raised honey bees kept without the use of chemicals in the hive or exposure to pesticides within a 2 mile radius of the apiary (the usual range of a busy honey bee).
It was hard to find such an area in the highly farmed region around Rochester so Don approached Bill Bernacchi of B and B Honey Farm. Bill was able to find the perfect location several miles outside the sleepy little town of Houston, Minnesota.

Without the use of chemicals in the hives, mites and bacterial diseases will kill the bees by year's end. New colonies must be established on a regular basis. This high replacement rate coupled with the need to travel to such an isolated location increases the cost of organic honey.
Enjoy the great taste of organically farmed Johnston Honey!
Heard the buzz?I purchased a bottle of the Johnston Prairie Wildflower honey at Rochester Produce the other day. I must say, I have never had such communal sharing of a food item in my house all at one time. I wanted you to know it was absolutely delicious and was indeed reminiscent of the wild prairie! Thank you and please continue the good work.
