Spring 2021 Poor Weather Means No Spring Devon Honey

Our 2020 Honey sold out rapidly last year. Throughout the seasons we regularly get asked if we have honey for sale and look forward to when we can sell it again. Unfortunately for the bees, the Spring 2021 weather has been poor. As a consequence our bees have been unable to get out and about to gather sufficient nectar for a surplus of spring honey to sell. Hopefully we may have some honey in August. We will notify all our Honey Newsletter subscribers when available. If you want to know when honey is available, sign up to our Honey newsletter.

Description

Flavour

Our bees are located in our fields between Bickington and Fremington, just on the outside of Barnstaple, North Devon. They forage for nectar in the hedges lining the fields, local trees as well as local gardens. In our opinion, the honey shows the characteristics of a traditional English honey, smooth but floral with hints of fudge and citrus.

Granulated Honey

All natural and unprocessed honey will crystallise over time.  Depending on which flowers the bees have been visiting will depend on how quickly the honey granulates or goes solid.  Processed liquid honey bought in the super market, is treated to stop granulation.  This is often done through heating the honey.  This process destroys the natural properties of the honey removing the benefits and altering the taste. At Chilcotts Farm our honey is Pure and Untreated.  All we do is filter our honey after it has been extracted. The fact that honey crystallises and granulates, is the best evidence that you have a quality pure product.  However, if you prefer liquid honey you can restore it to a liquid state by gently heating the honey.  To do this:
  1. Loosen the lid of the jar, and stand the honey jar in a bowl of hot water.
  2. Gently stir the honey until the honey becomes liquid again.
