Honey Festival and Autumn approaches

Autumn is just beginning to make its presence felt with the odd misty morning and a tiny hint of coolness at dawn. My neighbour has already started to comb the woods for the first mushrooms and I’ve been harvesting honey. Our bees are still busy collecting pollen but they no longer flock to the well where we have an old concrete bowl with stones in which we keep filled with water for the bees, essential for their honey making. As it has been so dry, apparently the flowers were not producing so much nectar, so the amount of honey is down, but it still tastes as sweet. Feeding the bees with sugar syrup will be very necessary this year and I have left a few half filled combs of honey for them too, which they are using now, though the ivy is about to bloom, the last feast before the winter.

HONEY FESTIVAL SATURDAY 28 October at Le Maine Meunier Chavenat. 2.00-5.00pm
We will be hosting the honey festival again this year, where you are welcome to come and taste different honeys, buy locally produced honeys from local beekeepers, learn about bees and how you can help ensure they have a welcome in your garden. There will be tea/coffee and Honey Cakes to try.
Local producers are welcome to sell their honey and bee products.
