Has anyone tried the cure for hayfever which is to eat honey made from local bees?

My grandad keeps bees and i eat vats of the stuff and can truthfully say have never been bothered by hayfever whilst at home but once or twice while on holiday!!

I have heard of this and would love to try it for ds who gets hayfever, but not much local honey in North West London!

Sis, which NW are you? There's a beekeeper in NW5 (Lady Margaret Road, I think).
I'm still sneezing though.
Does anyone know, how much should you consume to make a difference?

Bakedpotato, may I CAT you for details?

Sis, to save you time, I've just checked my jar.
