Pure Oxfordshire Honey
Our primary product is honey pure and simple. This means that We do not fine filter in order that all the natural qualities and benefits of our honey are retained.
The type of honey we sell depends on the weather conditions and season for the given year, see below for details.
Every year can bring different tastes due to what is blooming, since each year rain, sun, moisture, etc. all play a vital role in what plants are growing and providing nectar to the bees. Thus, our honey reflects a unique time of season in the specific place in which they live. We provide our bees with an enormous variety of plants that are ecologically managed, from which the bees forage.
Spring honey (Blossom, rapeseed) is made by the bees using nectar from numerous flowers (poly floral) such as apple & pear blossom, snowdrops, bluebells, poppies & to name a few. Rapeseed honey sets firm quickly and is usually pale white in colour . It has a delicate aroma and tasting expresses many layers: floral, grassy, tangy, earthy, its my favourite. Blossom honey is taken from the hives adjacent to our mini orchard where we have various apple, pear & cherry trees. The honey from here varies from almost clear to a very pale golden hue. You can actually taste apple! Summer or main crop honey is taken later in the season towards the end of summer. It has the taste of summer - in a jar! Bees make this from a variety of wildflowers such as our gorgeous display we grow around the hives, Lavender, Raspberry, strawberry to name a few.
Our honey comes to you in pure form, nothing added or taken away. The frame on the right contains honey that the bees have capped over using wax.
