New Season Comb Honey For Sale

Today we took off the first frames from our garden hives to make comb honey.┬áMost people understand that honey direct from a beekeeper is more likely to be ‘raw’, ‘unfiltered’ or just ‘not messed around with’ and so better for you and, many believe, helpful against hayfever. We are also often asked about the purest way to eat honey. Well, comb honey has to be it.

The frames are first taken from the supers, the shallow boxes put on top of the hive for the bees to store honey in.

As you can see, this means that the honey within the cells has never been touched by human hands or processed in any way. It has to be the most natural way to take honey. The first of these containers took about 20 minutes to go from hive to being on sale.

If you want my opinion as to the best way to enjoy comb honey, remembering that you can eat it all, wax included, then keep it simple. Cut a slice of the wax/honey and spread over a hot buttered crumpet or piece of toast. Nothing better.

If you would like to try it then you can buy it from my sales page here.

  1. Delicious clear honey just received today Andy (very speedy delivery too), thanks very much. Will be back in touch again as soon as we’ve finished it – might try some comb next time!

  2. You are very welcome Kate. I am glad you are enjoying the honey. It makes the hard work and extra care worth it to know that people can taste and appreciate the difference to ‘supermarket’ honey.
