Just 300 jars of this honey were produced by bees that Claudine keeps in a friends rural garden at Canford Magna and came off the hives in August. The bees are kept in the shelter of pine trees and a huge ivy bush that will keep them fed right until the very start of winter.
Claudine started beekeeping just a few years ago, her family’s love of honeycomb driving her to it! Like so many of our beekeepers it’s been a hobby that has just grown and grown. I loved the brightly painted hives in her own backgarden and the camouflaged ones by the pine trees at Canford Magna so they merge in. She’s the only beekeeper I know who paints her hives to reflect their environment and has inspired me to take a similar approach!
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.
