A Honey Of A Story -- Best Story Of The Day -- February 2, 2015

Our older granddaughter has a particular interest in honey. Since about age four she listened to stories about honey and honeybees and then started reading about honey on her own. While in Boston we found a little store near Harvard Square that sold honey from around the world. Expensive, but she loved it.

So, this story was of particular interest. Multiple sources are reporting, this is from The Grand Forks Herald:
Kloten Apiaries, which started making honey here about four decades ago, is still buzzing along and recently landed a sweet national award.
Elizabeth Stromme, whose family founded Kloten Apiaries 38 years ago, said they entered this year’s Good Food Awards contest in San Francisco on a whim, after Kloten Apiaries was invited to submit honey for judging.
“It was just something that came out of left field and I said, ‘OK, let’s send a couple jars,’ ” Stromme said.
Kloten Apiaries ended up being one of a dozen honey producers in the country to receive a Good Food Award this year, with the winners determined by an organization comprised of representatives from a cross-section of the food industry.
