Hi all,

I like to make mead, and have been searching for new, unique regional sources of honey.

Was wondering if any of you can point me to any local resources that offer unique regional varietals?

(I'm in AZ and frequently get mesquite and desert wildflower)

Find the local bee clubs and there should be members sell honey. Some clubs have web sites and honey for sale can be found there.
And yes, local farm stores.

Orange blossom honey is very good. It's rare to find it here.
When we visited Alaska one year I bought some Alaskan wildflower honey. It was lighter and sweeter than Ohio clover honey.
Buckwheat honey has a strong, not real sweet flavor. I don't like it in tea but a plain spoonful every so often is a good treat.

That's where I usually get it, but I'd like to try other varietals that I can't find here for my mead.
Yeh, I misread your post.

This is the place that produced my buckwheat and lavender infused honey.
