Bury Bees collect nectar and pollen from a variety of flowers and trees in and around the villages of Bury and West Burton, situated in the Sussex South Downs National Park.
We have had apiaries in the area since 2009.
Our honey is sold pure and untreated, just as the bees have made it.
We harvest pure unrefined honey using minimal filtering. Our honey is jarred on site at our 5-rated hygiene premises to ensure our products meet the highest standards. We sell:

Wax Wraps (the sustainable alternative to plastic film)
As well as being delicious, Bury Bees honey contains pollen, propolis, and other micronutrients that could otherwise be destroyed by heat and pasteurisation.

I couldn't have bees unless I had someone totally brill like you to look after them as I am not around enough at the moment so thank you very much for sorting out everything".
