Happy bees make the best honey!
Here at the National award winning Travelling Bee Company, our mission is to supply you with the highest quality honey- and that’s what we do. Our unique and completely natural honeys are all 100% raw, unprocessed and look and taste magnificent. Thanks to our loved and cared-for bees, we extract only the honey they can spare- a natural beekeeping practice that involves hand spinning the honey out of its comb. Filtering and pouring our honey into jars ,ensuring the natural beauty and taste our honeys are renowned for.
We source and produce our gorgeous natural, unprocessed honey from bee hives across the North East of England, Northumberland and by the shores of the Kyles of Bute, Argyll, Scotland.
We firmly believe that happy bees make the best honey. That's why we bundle our busy bees into our Bee-Mobile and travel across the North East of England, Scotland - and often further afield - setting up apiaries to give them access to the widest variety of flowers and trees in every season. In our constant search for exciting new flavours, we'll even source from Europe and beyond.
When it comes to quality and taste, you'll find our honey travels well.
Over recent years, many dedicated experts have been fighting to highlight the extent of the demise of the honeybee. Lots of television and media coverage have made life inside the world of the honeybee more understandable. But just as we believe that we are beginning to understand their behaviour, we then discover that there is more to learn.
Honeybees are social insects and one of the very few insects that are able to survive our winter period as a colony. They might have to store enough food to last them an incredible 6 month period.
As we probably know, a beehive consists of many worker bees (girls), not so many drones (boys) and the all-important Queen bee. When Queeny is in full flow she can lay as many as 3,000 eggs every single day!
