Hello and welcome,
I am an old Essex beekeeper based in the North of Essex near Colchester working in partnership with the local honey bees producing tasty, delicious, healthy, natural, and pure Essex Honey. My honey bee families are located in apiaries in the countryside and orchards around Copford, Marks Tey and Colchester. The honey is cold filtered and non pasteurised. Cold straining the honey means that the original pollen is retained in the honey and straining is only done to remove pieces of honeycomb wax. Honey which is heated above 36C destroys the antioxidants, important enzymes, vitamins and other beneficial attributes of the honey. Heating also affects the natural aroma and flavour of the honey. I practice sustainable beekeeping as far as possible. My bees are locally adapted and I raise my own queens for my colonies.

In meadows kissed by the sun's warm embrace,
Honeybees dance, a delicate grace.
With wings that hum, a sweet melody,
They gather the nectar, nature's decree.
Amidst blossoms, a ballet of gold,
A tale of sweetness, silently told.
From hive to flower and back once more,
A symphony of honey, nature's encore.

Best honey I have ever tasted. And I've tasted a lot. Robert's bees, every one of them, are the best!
Many of my customers have said that using pure local natural honey throughout the year on a regular basis has helped their hay fever symptoms during the allergy season. Try some and see if it helps.
Some of the bees I manage are helping to pollinate local fruit growers trees. Pears, apples and cherries being the main varieties. The hives are sited within the orchards ready for spring time blossoms. Everybody benefits.
Please plant bee friendly plants in your garden. Early spring flowering plants such as crocus and snowdrops provide early pollen source for the bees. Dandelions are a great resource for bees please leave a patch for them to grow on your lawn. Thanks.
