A heath food store owner asked me if it would be beneficial to her customers if she got her honey products from Midland, TX. I live in the area of Lubbock, TX. That is 110 miles distance.

She lost her supplier here (they moved to Arkansas)and as this is my first year I don't have anything for her right now.

She wants to know if it would be worth the trip or is she wasting her time?

Jerry -

Any opportunity to sell honey is a good thing.  

 "Local Honey" is a state of mind.    How local is local?  For some it's a mile for others, it a hundred.  If she wants your source to help with allery issues,  I was summise that pollen and nectar sources 110 miles away  are similar to where she is, especially if they are in the same hardiness zone.    

Beekeepers/resellers just have to honest as to where the location of the hives are.  Putting the city on the label will suffice.

Anything from a local beekeeper will be better than a commercially available solution that contains honey from who knows where.

I agree with Michael. I would consider it local enough, because the plants (and therefore pollens) would be the same basiclly.

Jerrymac, I'd think she might ask a local allergist there in Lubbock
for a doctor's opinion, but tell her to keep the fact that she owns
a health-food store to herself when she asks the doctor's advice.
(for obvious reasons) wink
