Hello everyone. I am a Permaculture Designer working on a community farm project in Costa Rica. I am having difficulty identifying a local source for honey bees and was hoping this community would help. Any ideas??

I had some friends in language school in San Jose. They bought local honey at the open air market. They were just learning the language, so did not know how to ask, "Where are your bees?" But I would think a local market would be a good place to start.

Thanks for the idea. I've already been looking at the supermarkets and most of the honey I've found is imported. However, I'm not giving up on the strategy. Thanks again.

I would agree with the standman and try and find out from local people where the "market" is or when it's held. Supermarkets are just not going to have decent local honey.. which is a shame.
