Honeyed Autumn Days

September dawns with mists and mellow fruitfulness, and drizzle, and chilly days, ouch! summer seems to be in retreat and Autumn well on its way. However we have harvested our honey and it was a bumper crop, our bees are in the woods, so gather nectar from the chestnut trees, which makes a dark honey, they then move onto the garden flowers, lavender and perovskia especially but can’t resist the sunflowers which grew all around us this year, which gives a light honey, so the two combined makes a fragrant combination, I’ve included some in this week’s menu…..

We are hosting a Honey Festival on Thursday 26 October from 2-5 pm

There will be experienced beekeepers that you can put your questions to, a display of different local honeys to taste and plenty to buy. There will be a demonstration of honey harvesting and an explanation of different hives and bee keeping equipment. Perhaps also a chance to sign up to a beekeeping course for next year.

It is a friendly afternoon of people interested in bees, what bees do, how bees’ lives interact with ours and everyone is welcome.
There will be tea/coffee and cake served.
More details to follow.
