Ethically Kept Bees
At The Welsh Honey Company, our raw Welsh honey is made by busy bees collecting the nectar and pollen from a wide variety of flowers from across Wales.
Our honey is cold extracted and strained of the wax bits to ensure that you get a quality welsh honey that is bursting with vitamins, minerals and pollen. It's what makes honey a superfood.
It first started back in 1969 when my grandfather started beekeeping in his back garden with one or two hives as a hobby. My grandfather grew his hive numbers over the years and in 2014 I was invited to visit the hives along with my local primary school. This is where my experience with bees started. I was invited to start beekeeping with my grandfather every sunday morning where we would visit the local association and then visit the apiaries straight after. At 11 years old, I was given my first hive.
In early 2017 my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer and suddenly passed away. At the time I had just turned 15 and with nobody else in the family that kept bees, I inherited all 30 hives. My dad was roped into starting beekeeping despite being petrified of bees.
This is where The Welsh Honey Company started.
In 2021 we are still a family business with the same passion for our bees, Welsh honey and our amazing customers who make The Welsh Honey Company so special.
