This is a lovely honey, smelling of hay and greenery and a flavour that changes, starting caramelly and warm and then developing into a more heady floral flavour. A taste bud adventure!

Size: 224g / 8oz jars
Free postage and the story of the beekeeper included
Just 400 jars of this honey were produced by bees that Eduard keeps at a Pick Your Own fruit and vegetable farm at Cookham, Berkshire. Like the PYO at Iver where he also has bees, this too is heaven for bees with different varieties of each fruit planted to make sure that the flowering, and picking seasons are as long as possible
This honey is from August and Eduard says that the bees not only had all the fruit and vegetables at the PYO but that the local farmer also had potatoes and phacelia as a cover crop which bees love!
Eduard has been beekeeping for over 10 years and has bees doted across several apiaries. His bees are all doing well and their numbers are growing so his wife helps him too with the business side of things while he’s out beekeeping. In the winter months he works as a carpenter and also builds all his own hives and equipment. I love visiting them as I always get a very warm and friendly welcome and enjoy catching up on their family (and bee) news!
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.
