This honey is from bees kept in a back garden just on the edge of Tooting Common, SW London. The hives are in a really lovely garden with mature fruit trees and wild borders, The Common has avenues of horse chestnut and lime trees as well as blackberry bushes.
Sue took the honey off her bees in July, and couldn't believe how much they were making: everything must have been going their way from the weather to the nectar flows all coming together at the right time for them!
Sue has been beekeeping in London for a good few years now and is a gardener by trade. She took up beekeeping as a hobby following in her father’s footsteps with the smell of the wax and beehives bringing back happy childhood memories. I know what she means, there is something very comforting and evocative about the smell of a shed full of beekeeping equipment!
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!
