PHOENIX, AZ – (February 1, 2017) Rango Honey is proud to announce their blue ribbon win for “Best Honey” from the Arizona State Fair. Entrants were judged on best appearance, flavor and texture in the Plant, Herbs & Florals category of the Floriculture & Horticulture Department. Rango Honey took first place at this statewide competition.
“We’re thrilled to have won this statewide award,” said Fred George, Beekeeper at Rango Honey. “We started out as a small, family-run operation seeking only pure and natural food options for the special needs son of the company owner, and have since grown to become one of the most trusted suppliers of pure, raw honey in Arizona.”
Since opening their doors in 2015, Rango Honey has shown steady growth in their mission to provide pure, raw honey to customers throughout the nation. With over 1,500 hives in the Southwest, their award-winning gourmet honey varietals continue to expand.
Rango Honey recently expanded their operations by adding a new retail space and bottling capabilities to their 10,000-square foot warehouse.
