Love this honey!!!

This honey is wonderful. Hard to describe the flavor. It’s not as sweet as the thyme honey but it is delicious in its own way. Just try it. You will not be disappointed!!!!

Wild Oak Honey

This is the most delicious honey I’ve had in eons. It has a rich, satisfying flavor without being cloyingly sweet. It’s great on plain Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, toast and coffee. I’ve enjoyed it so much I ordered some to give as a gift. I’ll be ordering more of this and trying some other types of honey as well.
