Less food miles! Food miles are the distance the food travels from point of production to point of sale. We take this from the location of the hives to where we extract and bottle the honey and then back to the shop for sale.
Our Carpenters’ Nursery honey travels about one food mile between collection, extraction, bottling and then back to Carpenter’s for sale. The honey we sell at Ushers’ Bakery travels about two food miles and at Jay's Delicatessen about five food miles.
