A spoonful of honey

Here at the farm shop, we stock jars of honey from local producers. Rees Bees of Halstead being one of them. Gathered from beautiful blue borage fields of East Anglia, their English Borage Honey has a delicate flavour and, to some, tastes a little less sweet than most of types of honey.

As well as being super delicious and a fantastic ingredient for many dishes, honey also has an array of vitamins and minerals, including Iron, Calcium, B6, Potassium and Magnesium. With honey packed full of goodness it is known for treating health problems such as fatigue, colds & coughs, headaches, and indigestion. So, whether you’re adding a spoonful to your dish, a dash to your drink, or spreading it across your toast, honey is a sweet treat which we don’t need to feel guilty about.
