It doesn’t get any better than pure, all-natural honey. Anna’s Honey is made by Pacific Northwest bees that visit blossoms in remote regions and bring back nectar to create a rich, smooth honey. Flavors include blackberry, clover, wildflower and raspberry, available in traditional mason jars or in a gift jar featuring a sketch of the floral variety from which its honey was derived.

This is a fan favorite for visitors and locals alike.
