My mom is a beekeeper.
She doesn't have a specific grove that they pollinate, so we classify it as "wildflower" honey.
It tastes much better because the kind you buy in the store isn't actually honey. It's Karo-style corn syrup with artificial flavors and colors, with just a drop of real honey to fit the FDA "standards."
Real honey is delicious!! It has a much lighter flavor than store "honey." And depending on what plants the bees pollinated that year, or what time of year it was harvested, it can taste totally different. Spring honey is incredibly light, and it's usually quite light colored. I've seen spring honey that was extremely light yellow, almost clear. It gets darker and more intense in flavor as the year goes on; you can harvest at least twice, maybe more depending on how the year has been for your bees.
Anyway. All that's to say that if you like it, you should seek out local honey wherever you can. It usually isn't hard to find and can be more expensive than the store-bought kind, but it's totally worth it.
ETA: Yes, it can really help those with seasonal allergies. You're essentially ingesting a pollen byproduct, and it can really help your body learn to recognize that pollen isn't an alien intruder.
