We are sorry to say that we are now sold out of honey. The summer of 2020 was very difficult for bees and honey production. The extreme heat, plus the drought in our part of the County, meant that far less nectar than usual was produced this year. Thus the bees were not able to store as much honey as normal. In addition, demand has been much higher than ever before so the limited stock went quickly.
We are hoping for a much better season in 2021 and hope to be able to announce a good honey harvest in July and August.
Honey raised by Andrew Burkinshaw
We honour what the plants and bees were designed to do and thus minimally process the bounty to preserve its natural goodness. Our honey is small-batch extracted, using only gravity to move it through the extraction process. Our honey is completely unheated, so that all the natural flavours and nutrients are intact. We place our hives in locations where the bees will find their primary forage from wild, unsprayed blossoms, seeking their health and ours, in avoiding chemical contaminants. Our bees forage in fields, forests and edge lands which are far away from crops sprayed with chemicals. We are honoured to bring this product to you and hope that you enjoy its goodness.
