Wicklow Mountain Beekeeper - Heather Honey

Sale price€14,50


This honey attracts a higher price as it is far more labour intensive as the honey can not be extracted from the frames. Also the beehives need to be transported to the heather in the mountains in July. The honey in the comb is cut out of the frames and mashed up, it’s then wrapped in hessian cloth and the honey is pressed out of the wax using a very strong press, something similar to a fruit press for making juice.

This honey still contains small particles of beeswax that pass through the hessian cloth.
