We seem to have a profusion of honey at the moment from local and British hives, and given the scarcity of bees these days, not too expensive. Here’s a rundown of what’s on the shelves this week.
Gareth’s English Heather Honey
“Bottled by hand in Kings Norton, delivered by bicycle” – Gareth’s honey is a local as it gets. Tastes lovely and great for hay fever sufferers to build up immunity to local pollen too.
£2.25 / 227g
Littleover Apiary Honey
Based in Derby and using honey from managed hives across the east of England, Littleover is both traditional and high-tech in their approach. [Edit: But not necessarily this honey. See comments below.]
£2.41 / 340g
English Beekeepers Honey
From the First Honey Co-op of British beekeepers, this honey is guaranteed to be from the UK produced using craft skills and traditional methods.
£3.34 / 340g
