Where does honey come from?

Honey is made by bees, who extract sweet nectar from plants and deposit into honeycombs in a hive set up by a beekeeper. The beekeeper then removes the honeycombs from the hive, extracts the nectar (now honey), and sends it to a bottler like Burleson’s for packaging and distribution.
