Dakotas Remain Top States In Honey Production
FARGO, ND -

Much of the nation's honey continues to be produced in the Dakotas.

The Agriculture Department says North Dakota in 2011 was tops in the nation in honey production for the eighth straight year, despite a 30 percent drop in production to 32.7 million pounds.

California remained the second-leading state with 17.8 million pounds, followed by South Dakota with 16.5 million pounds. Production in South Dakota was up 7 percent from 2010.

Nationally, honey production last year dropped 16 percent to 148 million pounds.
