Jar of delicious honey harvested from the provocative Provencial lavender fields of France. The Travelling Bee Co collects the honey made from their bees at several “apiaries” (sometimes called bee yards where beehives are located).
They strategically place these beehives in gardens in the city, the countryside and on the hills in rural Scotland and Northumberland. They believe that honey sourced from a wide range of flowers and trees will taste great and make you feel great! And just as important, the bees love the ability to have a wide range of flowers to choose from and it helps to maintain a healthy vibrant beehive.
The taste: One of the finest honeys in the world. Runny in texture with a gentle opaque golden colour and an unbelievable scent. The lavender flavour gently cuts through the sweetness of the honey giving it a delicate floral background taste. From the fields to the hive to the jar. A must for the honey connoisseur.
Honey has been valued as a natural sweetener since ancient times and often referred to as “Nectar of the Gods”. As well as the great natural taste, honey releases sugars into the bloodstream, providing an almost instantaneous supply of energy. It is easy to store, highly nutritious and contains therapeutic and medicinal benefits, some of which we are only just starting to appreciate. Many of the plants that our bees source have antibacterial properties. These properties have been recognised for thousands of years. There is growing debate and support for the use of local honey regarding building our immune system and helping to tackle seasonal allergies such as hay fever.
Honeybees will comfortably travel within a radius of 3 miles from their home. That’s 3 miles in one direction and 3 miles in the other direction.
