We place our beehives in areas that are good for the bees. Some are situated in old woods, others are on farms with plenty of hedgerows and we have some on an old estate with plenty of mature gardens.
Our bees collect honey from a variety of flora, which can include blackberry blossom, dandelion, hawthorn, white clover, horse chestnut, sycamore and ling and bell heather. But there are many other minor flowers which they collect from.
This multitude of flowers is what gives our honey – and other Irish honey – its complexity of flavour.
Because of this, not every jar of honey tastes exactly the same.
