Star Thistle

Star thistle flower.

Our star thistle honey comes from central Michigan.  Originally planted to prevent erosion, this plant thrives in poor conditions such as sandy soil and drought.  It has spread throughout Michigan, somewhat negatively, but is a prolific honey plant.  The resulting honey is from untreated, unsprayed fields and has a light, mild, slightly zesty taste.
