Meet the team

Producing honey the ‘old fashioned’ way still means we get to use state-of-the-art production technology.

Our team works hard to make sure we still keep to the organic principles of producing great honey that our family started with over 100 years ago.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality organic honey products with a friendly, personal service to suit your needs as a consumer or distributor worldwide.
