DESCRIPTION

Enlightened Cotswold farmers are taking their land back to more traditional management and this honey is produced in areas rich with flowering native trees and mixed hedgerows. The fields are sown with wild flower strips and careful crop rotation nurtures both the soil and the wildlife, supporting an ever-increasing biodiversity. This hand cut honeycomb section contains the bees’ own elegant fusion of wild forage (including bramble, elderflower, rosebay willowherb, white clover, lime, chestnut and cherry) and the crops including borage and field beans which they help to pollinate.

TASTING NOTES

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.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

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.
