Local honey extracted, bottled and sold locally – less food miles!
Honey from St Albans
From our local hives raw honey is extracted by hand straight from the honeycomb, strained to remove stray particles of wax from the honeycomb and then bottled into jars for pure and tasty honey. There are no additives – just the highest quality honey.
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 Carpenters for sale.
