The rolling countryside of the Cotswolds has traditionally yielded some of Britain’s best farmland. It is also an area where environmental consciousness is gaining new ground. Many farms are turning their backs on modern monocultural practice, returning to more traditional land management. This offers both honeybees and wild pollinators a rich mosaic of forage; from flowering trees and hedgerows to wildflower strips sown in the margins of fields and the crops which they help pollinate. Hives intended to produce whole honeycombs are specially set up in the spring with new frames and unwired wax foundation.
For as long as humans have existed, we’ve revelled in the joy of pure comb honey; mankind’s original luxury food. Once gathered from wild colonies and now built by managed colonies, a whole comb is an awesome creation and a very special treat for any honey lover.
There is no more profoundly authentic honey experience than a section carved from a whole comb. Biting through the delicate wax to release the honey held within is a sensory joy. Slather onto hot buttered toast or finish special puddings with chunks of dripping comb. Comb sections instantly elevate a cheese or charcuterie board.
The wax can safely be swallowed or removed from the mouth according to taste.
