#28. Enjoy the nectar of Hill Country flowers with a jar of Fain’s natural raw honey!
Fain's Honey Store south of Llano specializes in 100% Texas Hill Country honey. That is, honey made from bees who pollinate Texas Hill Country flowers, primarily the flowers of “bee brush” found all over the Llano area. Bee brush produces tiny white, incredibly sweet smelling flowers after each rain. The honey it produces is considered by many to be the most delicious honey of all, tasting just like the flowers smell.
Fain’s has always been a family business. The business has been in operation since 1926. It is now owned by Keith Fain, the third in the line of Fains to own the business.
The most enjoyable way to get Fain’s honey is to visit the store south of Llano, open 9-5, except closed for the noon hour, weekedays. There, you can personally select from 9 cremed honey spreads (also called creamed honey), natural raw honey, sorghum molasses, and ribbon cane syrup to custom build your own gift box... or choose from several pre-selected, unique Texas honey gift boxes. Fain’s produces it’s famed cremed honey in several delicious flavors: pecan, amaretto pecan, almond, lemon, cinnamon, jalapeño, peach, and peach amaretto.
If you can’t get to the store, you can order on line or find Fain’s at HEB grocery store. Fain’s Honey is a great, unique gift (Texas gift or birthday gift) for someone special. Visit Fain’s website at http://www.fainshoney.com/
Fain’s is located two miles south of Llano on Highway 16, eastside of the highway. Hours: 9 AM to 5 PM, closed for the lunch hour, Mondays through Friday only.
Take a trip to Fain’s for me…you’ll be glad you did. And I sure wouldn’t complain if you dropped a jar off for me.
