This honey has a strong deep flavour and is darker in colour (compare it to the May honey from the same bees to see how honey changes all the time - even from the same hive!)

Just 450 jars of this honey were produced by bees that Stuart looks after at Ashling Park Vineyard in Sussex. I visited on a glorious sunny day and felt as if I was in France, looking out over stretches of vines that are producing award winning English sparkling wine. It's all sheltered by trees that were planted years ago and are now mature and protecting the vines from the worst of the weather
This honey is from August and the nectar source is mainly from blackberry, lime trees and sweet chestnut, the vines are wind-pollinated so the bees get to enjoy the location rather than the grapes!
Stuart’s been interested in bees for ages, as a young teenager he was helping out a local bee farmer in Sussex. From there he went on to work full time for Ashling Park Estate as their estate beekeeper. Along side this he has his own business called SW Honey Farms that he runs with his partner Lindsey.
We work with small scale British beekeepers who we visit to talk bees with and see the bees and landscapes that make each honey. All of our beekeepers are good custodians of their bees and the woodlands, meadows, gardens and fields they keep them in. They talk to local farmers, landowners, fellow allotment owners and councils to encourage planting for pollinators, sustainable woodland management and protecting the natural landscape for their bees. Our aim is to bring you special limited edition honeys from more and more British beekeepers: as long as they're good custodians of their bees of course!
Our jars and labels are all British sourced to keep our transport miles and carbon footprint low. We absorb the extra cost
Free 2nd class postage and packing to anywhere in the UK.
Our honeys are safely packed in Yorkshire hay and British sourced cardboard boxes, Opening the box is a treat with the sweet smell of summer and our jar of honey nestling inside.
