Hampshire is fortunate in having a mild climate and a wide range of forage for our bees ranging from urban gardens to New Forest heather, oilseed rape to wildflower meadow, and more. This means that our bees collect a wide range of nectars making beautiful honeys from the palest (borage) to the darkest (chestnut).
Bees also produce beeswax and our skilled beekeepers use this to make candles, blocks, polishes and cosmetics.
We display our products with pride, and our Honey Shows are open to the public after judging is complete, and experienced beekeepers are always on hand to answer questions.
