May's Honey Farms began producing "Sunny Hill Honey" in Chicago, Illinois back in 1948. Starting with two beehives that were purchased in Palatine, Illinois the company has grown and now has over 1400 beehives throughout six counties in northern Illinois and sourthern Wisconsin. In 1963, a one room schoolhouse from 1898 was tranformed into the new processing plant outside of Marengo, Illinois.
Sunny Hill Honey is harvested within 50 miles of the Marengo plant producing truly local honey. The honey comes from local wildflowers such as white sweet clover, yellow sweet clover, dutch clover, alfalfa, and lynden blossoms. This combination makes for the best tasting honey around. "Sunny Hill Honey" is sold all over the Chicagoland area at fine independent grocers and fresh produce retailers.
