This honey is as good as sweets and tastes like Starbursts to me! It’s naturally crystalisd and done it in a really smooth shiny way, beautiful to spoon!

Free postage and the story of the beekeeper included
Just 382 jars of this honey were produced by bees that Eduard keeps at a Pick Your Own fruit and vegetable farm at Iver, Buckinghamshire. The farm is a total treasure trove of fruit trees with different varieties planted to make sure that the flowering, and picking seasons are as long as possible, which must be heaven for the bees!
This honey is from August and it was so dry that Eduard thinks that the bees will have been feasting on the fallen fruits too as flowers don’t produce much nectar in dry patches. This summer they were surrounded by cherry and plum trees, strawberry and blackberry bushes as well as beans.
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!
