Working with local producers is a sweet way to do business, and patients will taste the difference when they try Prime’s infused local honey!
You may know that all Prime’s therapeutic cannabis products are made in New Hampshire, but our commitment to local commerce doesn’t stop there! We believe in doing business with local vendors and producers whenever possible, and our infused honey products are a particularly tasty example of a local partnership that patients can appreciate.
Prime initially tried using honey from other producers, but our search for the perfect source ended when we found Peter And His Bees. Peter de Bruyn Kops has been fascinated by bees since sixth grade, and he has been producing honey in southern New Hampshire for 25 years. His experience really shows in the final product – we believe his honey is the best in the region!
Many patients enjoy adding Prime local honey to a cup of hot tea or spreading it on toast. This is a convenient and delicious way to consume therapeutic cannabis! And for patients and caregivers who enjoy baking, honey works well in many recipes as a substitute for sugar. But the quality of the product depends almost entirely on the quality of the honey we are infusing. Fortunately, Peter’s honey tastes every bit as good as it looks:
Peter says he enjoys beekeeping because “it is a refuge from the stresses of modern life,” and he appreciates “the challenge of keeping the bees healthy and producing a good crop.”
It is also a great way to stay connected with the natural world. “I love that beekeeping is so close to nature and the seasons in that the inside of a bee colony reflects the condition of plant life in the surrounding mile or so,” he explained.
Peter says his customers seek out local honey for a few important reasons. Some people find it helpful in dealing with seasonal allergies. Others feel strongly about buying local for ethical reasons, or because fraud is a significant issue in the international honey trade. Also, local honey just tastes better!
