Here ya go, honey!

Remember a time when things were simpler?
When folks could make a living doing what
they loved and did it for generations?
That time still exists in Lake Wales, FL.
Welcome to Struther's Honey.

This family business has gone through 4 generations
in the same location, making golden, delicious,
unprocessed honey for those of us fortunate
enough to live nearby.

The inside of the tiny store displays not only
their scrumptious confections, but also
the history of the family business in pictures.

The kicker? 
They use the honor system to collect their income.
You simply take what you want, add up the amount,
and place it in the box.
How many places still do that?
Just this endearing practice alone
would make me continue to support them.

I feel blessed to be able to purchase a product
from folks who live their passion.
Quality control is never a concern because
they believe in what they are doing.
I'm so glad they do because I plan to
keep going back and fillin' up that box!
