Raw Honey from Kings Sombourne, Hampshire (fresh)
This pure, raw honey is straight from the bees that John keeps in farm land at Kings Sombourne, in Hampshire UK. This honey was taken off the hives in July and has a natural fresh flavour with a freshness and a zing, a lightness to it.
Until recently John combined beekeeping with shepherding; raising lambs over winter, and then beekeeping in the spring Now he’s cut back and focuses only on the bees, working with a fellow beekeeper who’s in his 90’s, so John is called ‘the boy’!
John has an engineering mind and helped design farm machinery that’s still in use today - I loved being shown it all.
