Roger Powell’s Raw Honey


Landscape architect Roger Powell is a beekeeper on a mission to protect and revive our diminishing population of pollinators. Shop for jars of Roger’s delicious raw honey produced from hives located in Findlay. Honey can last for 1,000 years and is a natural sweetener for drinks and foods. Since it harbors no bacteria, you can use it to seal cuts and scrapes.
