Description

We have several apiaries in the Brecks area, honey crops are usually gathered during the Spring, summer months being often too dry for ground flora to produce nectar, late summer and Autumn can produce good crops from the ivy and heather. We can provide apiary tours in late spring when time permits.
Our scale of operation and management methods allow us to produce several unique mono and poly floral honeys from Brecklands.

Environment care: We provide an important service to the environment and crop production as most wild honey bee colonies have disappeared in recent years.

Open: Honey is always available via an “honesty box”. Also available by mail order.

Markets: Farm shops, The Green Parrot, Swaffham; Saham farm shop; Anglia Gourmet, Harleston; Great Hockham farmers market.

Accessible by public transport.
