Bennett’s Honey Farm is located about one mile off Highway 126 in Fillmore California. The sign for the honey farm is easy to miss but well worth the effort to find.
The honey processing facility is not open to the public but there is a small store where visitors can taste and purchase Bennett’s Honey. Also inside the store, is a real beehive. A glass window lets you peek inside the active bee hive.
Bennett’s sells 100%, pure raw honey, along with a large selection of flavored honey. Wildflower, Eucalyptus, Orange Blossom, Blueberry, Clover, Cinnamon, Lemon, Sage, and Hawaiian honey.
There are two free honey tasting stations with tiny spoons where you can sample all the different kinds of the sweet substance.
Honey can be purchased in 12 oz bear-shaped plastic containers all the way up to 5-gallon buckets. You can also buy honey sticks, raw honeycomb squares, and honey by the case.
The farm store also features beeswax candles and beeswax skin products. If it can be made from honey or beeswax chances are you can find in at Bennett’s.
Groupon Deal”$17 for a Honey Tasting and four 1-pound jars of honey” well worth it if you want to stock up on honey. However, the honey tasting is free. So if you just want one bottle of honey, forget the Groupon.
