If you go to Richard’s home you will see a table along his driveway with bottles of honey and bars of bees-wax soap on it.

When I saw all that honey and bars of bees-wax soap I got out of my car and walked up to the table.  This friendly guy greeted me.  He proceeded to give me samples of local Redwood City honey, on a wooden stick.  That day Richard had 3 kinds of honey that he was selling.

Richard Baxter told me the many benefits of eating local honey and how local honey was great for controlling allergies. Because my allergies were acting up lately I listen to what Richard had to say.
