Where Does Honey Come From?
Most honey comes from farms where bees pollinate crops like berries, vegetables, fruit trees, and nut trees. In 2017, U.S. beekeepers gathered 148 million pounds of honey. The top honey states are North Dakota, California, South Dakota, Florida and Montana. Bees pollinate more than one-third of our crops and increase the value of harvests by at least $15 billion.
