In June and July our bees work hard to collect nectar from the tree blossom and hedgerow flowers in the fields and gardens around Standon in Staffordshire. These include the nectar from Hawthorn hedges, the Elder trees and wild Bramble that go together to provide a wonderful taste every year. The honey is cold filtered meaning that the honey will still contain traces of pollen- a source of great value especially for those who suffer allergies.
This is a clear, runny, golden honey with a sweet but complex flavour which varies throughout the season and from year to year depending on weather conditions.
The nectar from the June blossom tends to make a lighter honey with herby undertones. In July the honey is richer and often a little darker.
