Heather Honey

I took my bee hive up to feed on the heather on the North Yorkshire Moors this autumn.
It makes a good setting for a family picnic when I need to go and check up on them, although this year the weather meant wet picnics.But despite the rain my bees managed to give me 30 jars! It's not to everyone's taste, but bees fed on heather blossom produce a rich, dark honey that I love.

  1. Heather Honey is my favourite too. A friend of mine who kept Bees also made a honey which was a blend of Heather and Summer Blossom honeys.
    Very nice!
