Fair Trade Organic Kosher Honey
Add sweetness to your New Year with Wholesome Sweetener's Organic Raw and Organic Amber honeys. The honey comes from fair trade cooperatives in Mexico, so the farmers also get a "sweet" and fair wage. Wholesome Sweeteners' honeys are available in a variety of stores.
