Made by bees from the nectar of flowers, honey is the very essence of Mother Nature’s magic!
Honey is a natural food and is made up of glucose, fructose, water and up to 180 different nutrients and minerals. Here at Just Bee, we think it’s a great natural alternative to using refined (processed) sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Honey is also believed to have all sorts of positive benefits too – click here to learn more!
Our honey, pictured above, comes from nectar collected in meadows, gardens, trees and farmland and has traces of dandelion, hawthorn, chestnut, lime and other assorted wild flowers. This produces a mild and mellow flavour. The Just Bee honey is a special blend collected from beekeepers across Britain and Europe.
Meet some of our beekeepers…past & present
Osborne – Joe’s Grandad
As well as a keen beekeeper, Osborne kept ponies, sheep and hens in County Down, Northern Ireland. Sadly, grandad is no longer with us, but the inspiration for Just Bee will always be be traced back to this great lover of animals and nature! (And we love the old-school veil in this photo!)
Ron – Joe’s Dad
Like his Dad, Ron has kept bees since retirement and Just Bee was developed using honey fresh from his beehives in Lancashire. These days, Ron’s bees can’t keep up with demand for Just Bee so we have drafted in help from our beekeeper friends. You can find Ron’s musings about all things bees and honey in our blog.
Scott – Founder of hilltop honey
hilltop honey was founded when Scott began keeping bees in the garden of his parents house in mid Wales in the summer of 2011 and started jarring his own honey. We are very pleased to be supplied by hilltop honey and their raw British wildflower honey. You can buy direct from hilltop honey’s website.
