  • North Dakota leads the nation in the production of honey for a ninth consecutive year.
    The federal Agriculture Department says North Dakota honey production last year from producers with five or more colonies totaled 34.2 million pounds, up 5 percent from the previous year.
    Prices for the 2012 crop averaged $1.89 per pound, the highest on record. The total value of the North Dakota honey crop was $64.6 million, up 18 percent over the year.
