Information about local honey farmers is available at Honey.com under Honey Locator. The Honey Locator features a map of the lower 48 contiguous states, Hawaii and Alaska. Hovering the mouse over a state reveals its collection of known local suppliers and farmers.

Each farmer's profile includes contact information, the honey varietals and forms of honey offered, order methods and general sizes available.

LocalHarvest.org is a database of local growers and food. Site visitors can search by food type, city or ZIP code. Search results consist of honey farmers, markets where honey farmers sell their products, and food networks to which local honey farmers belong.

Each state's department of agriculture maintains profiles for its local growers, sellers and markets. The United States Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency maintains a master list of websites for state departments of agriculture on RMA.USDA.gov. Clicking on a state's name opens the website of its department of agriculture. Many of the state department of agriculture websites contain search tools to help locate details about local farmers and their specific products.
