In June and July we move the bees to the Cheshire woodlands to collect nectar from the tree blossom and hedgerow flowers. This is a clear, runny, golden honey with a less sweet but complex flavour which varies throughout the season and from year to year depending on weather conditions.
The nectar from the June blossom (dandelion, blackberry, honeysuckle, white clover) tends to make a lighter honey with herby undertones. In July the honey is richer and more viscous and can have a slightly minty taste from the bees foraging on lime tree nectar.
Ideal for on porridge or in Greek yoghurt.
- Honey is not suitable for people with a severe allergy to pollen or other bee products.
- Honey should not be given to infants under 12 months of age.
