Handmade Honey requires not only Hard work

All our honey comes from our 1,800 hives situated throughout Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.

Our early season honey is taken from the low lying fields where the bees forage on early season crops as well as blossoms and spring flowers. This honey collected in June or July are described as Wildflower Honey.

During July the beekeepers move the hives to higher grounds where the forage on the heather plants. Some of the wildflower honey is still in the hive at this point (We always leave enough for the bees!). The first harvest from this period produces honeycombs with some heather honey and some wildflower honey hence they are named Heather / Flower Comb Honey.

Towards the end of July, the beekeepers transport the hives to the heather moors. August brings the Heather flowers into bloom and with it our delicious Heather Honey. Our Heather Honey is very popular among the region and to the rest of the world.
