Spring honey, Summer honey, Heather honey...mmm

All honey comes from our own bees in apiaries either locally on the Welsh border or into Shropshire. We never import queens and are active in breeding resilient local bees.

Honey is harvested from our apiaries in late May, again in late July/early August with a further crop late September. The result is three distinctive products: Spring honey, a rich, creamy set honey; Summer honey, a complex flavoured and generally liquid honey; and ling heather honey strong flavoured, unique and a must-try. These are available in 227g and 340g (except heather) jars in selected local shops and through selected food and craft markets.

There are often subtle taste differences between our small batches reflecting the different flowers available in the different seasons and around different apiaries. We produce only quality retail honeys which are neither pasteurised or heated unnaturally and are lightly filtered to retain all the character and reported health benefits of the incorporated pollens.

Local heather honey is available most years from permanent apiaries near The Long Mynd or The Stiperstones. This avoids the several hours travelling often necessary for this crop in the UK. Cut comb tubs and chunk honey are often available.

We can also provide two sizes of single portion jar honeys to Shropshire and Welsh Marches hotels and bed and breakfast businesses who pride themselves in sourcing local quality produce for their guests, for welcome baskets for local holiday houses and cottages, and as wedding breakfast gifts and favours (we have also supplied our 227g jars with prize-winning label for this).
