Honey has been known for its healing properties for thousands of years - the Ancient Greeks used it, and so have many other peoples through the ages.

During the second world war, honey was being used for its antibacterial properties in treating wounds and still is today.

Honey can be mixed with lemon or ginger and when diluted makes a soothing drink helping to ease sore throats. It may help you to sleep if taken before going to bed.

The Hibernation diet is based around you taking 2 spoons of honey at bed time, the benefits reported are many. I have not the room here to go into detail but well worth 5 minutes reading easily found on Google.  

Honey is very versatile and can be used in many ways:- bread making, glazing your vegetables and meats . There are many recipes for the  baking of cakes, biscuits and puddings. Honey is a natural sweetener - just the way nature intended. 

Our honey is produced from the local flora in the fields, hedgerows, river banks and woodland. The field crops which produce honey are:- oil seed rape, field beans and borage.The honey is naturally blended with the local hedge row, trees and flowers which may include wild rose and may flower. In late summer the bees produce honey from balsam, willow herb, and heather from the Yorkshire moors.

The honey is filtered so as to present well in the jars. Excessive heat is not used, the honey is only heated up to hive temperature which is approximately around our body temperature which enables us to filter your honey.

Unfiltered honey is known as RAW HONEY.  During harvesting we can supply you with raw honey in 1.36kg tubs. However we can only do this if pre-ordered. Please email your order.

We also sell propolis products which can be beneficial to your health and are produced in England.

The hand creams we have on offer contain our honey and wax - a typically English honey product.  

Should you have any queries  please contact us and  we will  be pleased answer your questions.
