Galtee Honey Facts

Our honey is produced by our own bees. It is completely traceable back to us.

No sugar has been added to our honey. We do not feed our bees sugar while they are producing honey. Nothing is added to our honey.

Our honey is not pasteurised or overheated. Imported honey is often pasteurised. This process destroys valuable enzymes and deteriorates the honey.

Our honey bees are not given chemicals. If we need to treat our bees, we only use certified organic treatments.

Our honey bees welfare is important to us. Our bees are not exploited or exposed to high levels of stress. And seem quite happy in general!

We only use Native Irish Black Honey Bees. These honey bees are under threat in many parts of Ireland and Europe from imported strains of honeybee.
