Heather

Heather (Grug)

Heather is a very special source of nectar for the bees, and people either love or hate heather honey, with its distinctive strong flavour. Heather flowers late in the beekeeping season in late July and August and provides the bees with a source of food when there’s little else available.

The Heather bees are a new colony brought to the apiary in the autumn of 2017. Unfortunately, the bad summer weather of that year led to the loss of all our hives. The new Heather colony has coped well with their change in environment and now enjoy their new home in our orchard apiary.
