We harvest only from hives that have enough food for the hive to last a winter within the brood box already. By using a check list we can ensure that any supper we take will not endanger the hive in anyway and ensure a traceable document that starts the trail from hive to spoon.
- It is this checklist that has enabled us to maintain a 5% or less loss rate in all our apiaries.
- We do not blend honey from any two or more hives but rather keep it separate encapsulating a myriad of tastes depending on the flowers they visit throughout the season and this will vary season on season.
- All honey sold as Boutique, salt marsh honey comes solely from SSSI meadows and their proximity to surrounding salt marsh blooms
