Wild about Honey

At the end of August, we took a family day trip to Ramona, a town about 45 minutes from us. We love this area of San Diego County. We also love to shop small businesses, so when Josh saw Trumper’s Honey and Fruit Shack in Santa Ysabel, we had to stop. He has seen it before while working in the area but had never had a chance to stop by, probably because it is only open on weekends.

The nicest lady works in the shop and did not mind at all letting all my kids sample the honey. And it was delicious honey!

I have been looking for raw alfalfa honey for a long time, and of course, it’s not really something you can find in the store. I hadn’t been to a farmers’ market in a while either, so when I saw raw alfalfa honey here, I HAD to get it. 32 ounces of honey for $14.99. It was a $15 well-spent because I am now using it in or on everything I can. My kids loved the raw cherry and they especially like it on pancakes!

We also got 44 ounces of raw bee keeper honey (a mix of either buckwheat and alfalfa or buckwheat and sage honey, I can’t remember) for $16.99. I think we are set with honey for a while, and I’m sure by then, we will be ready for another trip to Trumper’s Honey and Fruit Shack!

These are some of the bee hives that were on the property by the parking lot. These are sealed so that bees don’t try to get in and form a hive. The bees live at the back of the property away from visitors.

Some pictures of the honey and fruit shack from the parking lot. This was probably my favorite stop on our trip. I would love to come back!

Trumper’s Honey and Fruit Shack is located off of Highway 78 in Santa Ysabel.
