Sequim Bee Farm gets ‘Good Food’ honor

Sequim Bee Farm has won its third Good Food Award, this year for its Snowberry Rose honey, the local business announced this week.

“Snowberry Rose came from our beehives on our farmland between Sequim and Port Angeles,” said Buddy Depew, who along with his wife Meg Depew, owns Sequim Bee Farm. “This honey is very light in color and floral in taste with a strong rose finish.”

This is the third year in a row that Sequim Bee Farm was awarded the prestigious Good Food Award. In 2017, it won with its Blackberry honey, and in 2016, for its Wildflower honey.

Sequim Bee Farm was the only honey finalist and award winner from Washington State in 2018, and it was the only winner from Washington State with its Blackberry honey in 2017.

The 2018 Good Foods Awards had more than 2,000 entries from across the country. The 199 award winners were selected from 15 categories of food/beverages by 277 judges.

Sequim Bee Farm has a booth at both the Sequim and Port Angeles Farmer’s Markets and at various fairs and festivals throughout the year. Learn more about the business by calling 360-460-2341.
