Black Bee Honey celebrates and supports British bees and their keepers by offering a range of only the best of British, raw and single-origin honey. Straight from the hive to jar to preserve flavour and health benefits. The Black Bee is the original British honey bee, which after almost dying out is slowly making a comeback.
The Black Bee or Apis Mellifera Mellifera is the native British honey bee. After losing most of their natural habitat of woodlands and wildflower meadows the Black Bee was verging on extinction. Only in recent years have there been efforts to protect the Black Bee is dedicated reserves in South West England.
The founders chose the name for their honey company as they support British bees and their keepers by sourcing and celebrating only British honey. Paul even has a colony living in the wall of his home in Somerset!
We’re a nation of honey lovers and we have a long history of beekeeping. The crazy thing is most of the jars of honey on the shelves of our supermarkets are imported and blended from mysterious locations far, far away.
Honey bee colonies are now rarely found in the wild so our honey bee population relies on beekeepers. As well as producing our own honey we work with select honey producers in the UK to offer the best of British, supporting both our bees and beekeepers.
