We are a small family business and we are beekeepers first and foremost. It is at the heart of all that we do. We currently run 200 hives throughout Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.
We will only harvest honey which is surplus to the bees' requirements. To do this we leave a whole box of their honey on each of the colonies throughout the year and only harvest honey from the extra boxes that they fill when they have a good flow of nectar.
All our honey is harvested individually from each apiary and sold with the location on the labelling enabling our customers to buy a honey that really is local to them.
We pick all our sites for their unique locations. All have something special for the bees to work.
Some are wildflower meadows, sweet chestnut woodlands, orchards, lime avenues, ivy etc. ach season we also take around 35 - 40 hives to the New Forest where we harvest a crop of heather honey for which we have won National Honey Show awards. We waste nothing.
All our wax products are made from our own beeswax from the cappings of the extracted honey and old honeycombs that we have to replace when necessary.
All our products are made by ourselves on a small scale. All very unique and with the natural aroma of honey.
