Johnston Honey is a small, family-run business that has been producing high quality, local honey in the Rochester, MN area for over 27 years. Don, his wife Sharon, and their children started to keep a few bees to enhance pollination of an unusually large perennial garden located on their property. As they increased the number of hives each year, they also expanded the business. Johnston Honey takes a simple approach to produce great honey each year. Give the bees what they need, a great location with easy access to food and water and let them do their work. With their hives nestled among newly restored prairie grasslands and large woodlands their honey has a rich and aromatic flavor.
