HONEY

Our honey comes from local flower nectar. It takes 2 million flowers and 50,000 miles for the bees to make a 454gm jar.


Honey contains sucrose, fructose and glucose in quantities which are determined by the flowers on which the bees have foraged. It also contains associated pollens which are believed to assist with easing the effects of allergies. 


Honey has been used for millenia in the treatment of wounds and infection as well as for culinary purposes 


We process our honey with care to bring you a naturally delicious and nutritious product

RESEARCH 

There is a wealth of literature about bees and bee-keeping and yet we know relatively little about what stimulates bee behaviours such as swarming at certain time of the year.


Our PYE BEE project is a collaboration aimed at developing the means to monitor bee's activities inside a colony using audio, temperature and visual sensors. Our aim is to optimise opportunities to control swarming, thus conserving bee colonies by preventing attrition and at the same time enabling higher levels of honey production.
