Wow! Honey competition closed out with a bang here at the Santa Cruz County Fair. Monterey Gold won best honey in both the “organic” and “all-around” divisions!

At the beginning of this summer we had one goal: get Monterey Gold to as many honey competitions as possible and let the professional judges decide for themselves if our honey was really as good as our friends and family had been telling us.

Since then we’ve traveled up and down California – from Monterey to Ventura, San Luis Obispo to Santa Clara to Santa Cruz – talking to whoever we could about our commitment to sustainable beekeeping, our passion for our bees, and what makes honey from Monterey so special.

And the results are in. With 7 blue ribbons, Monterey Gold is now California’s most award-winning honey!

We are so proud of what we’ve done this summer and can’t wait to bring it to everyone. And, making good on our promise earlier this year, you can now use this site to order California’s best honey!
