Honey produced locally by Native Irish Honey Bees.
We source our honey from a local producer - some of the hives are on land beside the home of one of the shop owners.
The native Irish honey bee, Apis mellifera mellifera is the only honeybee native to Ireland and the UK, and it is well adapted to our cool, wet maritime climate. It is commonly known as the black bee, the dark bee, the native bee or simply Amm. It is under serious threat. It also produces delicious honey.
