Natural Chilterns honey produced by Rob and Barry.
With its abundance of sprawling fields, hawthorn hedgerows and sun-kissed meadows, our honey bees love nothing more than to seek out the richest pollen from the wealth of wildflowers and shrubs on offer before returning to their hives for the important task of honey production.
We take pride in looking after our bees to ensure that the ever important bee population continues and that we deliver a top quality honey for you to enjoy.
We’re always on the lookout for new locations to site our hives. If you have the room and would like to help maintain the bee population in the Chilterns then please let us know!
What’s the difference between ‘straight from the hive’ honey and the stuff in a supermarket?
The squeezable, generic plastic bottles you find in many shops are labelled as ‘honey’ but contain a normalised product void of distinction.
Mass produced ‘honey’ is intensely processed to create a mediocre syrup that consumers demand and, as such, everyone has grown accustomed to. This standardised version of honey is as far from ‘straight from the hive’ honey as it could be.
Pure honey, straight from the hive, carries with it the aromas and characteristics of colony location, time of year and many other variations a natural process, such as honey production, should contain.
“There’s honey and then there’s your honey. Beautiful taste and fantastic aromas, loved it. Already pre-booked the next new batch”
All of our honey is produced in the Chiltern hills, nothing added, nothing taken away. For this reason, the colour and consistency differ throughout the year dependent upon the available nectar.
We’ve been told on several occasions that our honey “tastes like the Chilterns”. People can identify and connect its aromas with those of the wonderful area in which our bees collect the pollen for their honey production.
