Rugby Beekeepers’ Artisan Honey - straight from our hives to your table – 100% pure honey.

Our hobbyist beekeepers house their beehives within the wider Rugby area and their bees forage for nectar within three miles of the colony, so local honey means local.

Our summer months are spent working with the bees - inspecting, nurturing and finally extracting the bees' honey by hand - we keep it simple and pure - we spin the gorgeous golden liquid straight from the comb; gently filter it through a sieve; let it settle and then jar it up - ready to sell or just to taste ourselves!

Our simple, focussed and time dedicated approach to extracting honey means that none of the goodness is lost and this gentle process means there is little damage to the bees, comb or honey. Taste, aroma and health benefits are all encapsulated in one jar – it really is 100% pure honey.

Each jar has a depth of flavour unique to each colony of bees – nothing is added – it’s purely nectar from flowers and plants that the bees find and forage from the surrounding meadows, gardens, farmland and countryside, with a little pollen in for good measure.

Honey has been nature’s sweetener since 2100BC and this gift from nature has been used to tend to wounds in ancient Egyptians’ times, baked as honey cakes and offered as gifts to the gods in ancient Greek times and now more simply you could drizzle it all over a hot buttered crumpet!

As an Association we recommend our local beekeepers consider selling a 1/2 lb of honey for £4 and 1lb for £6; this is merely our guideline as we know their honey is worth it! Rugby Beekeepers exceptional honey is different to the regular honey on the supermarket shelves; you’ll know once you taste it for yourself. 100% pure artisan honey.

Please contact us to find your local beekeeper so you can enjoy local honey.
