Hic! Honey

Ledston Hall, Ledston in West Yorkshire

Our Honey Bees live on the wonderful Ledston Estate that comprises approximately 1,235 hectares (3,050 acres) of mixed farmland, woodland, parkland, historic gardens and wetlands; providing a superb array of foraging opportunities for our bees. The Grade 1 Listed Ledston Hall is the principal building on the Estate and provides a wonderful backdrop to our apiaries. Our honey is fresh from the hive - 100% natural, pure, raw honey - nothing added and nothing taken out. Each of our hives are harvested individually with care and the welfare of our bees first and foremost.

In addition to our Natural Honey Michelle also utilises the bees wax to craft a number of other Bee related products.
