Creamed Honey

The bees collect nectar from spring flowers, grown in gardens, field, trees and hedgerows up until the middle of June. Once the honey is harvested from the hives it is brought back to the extraction room where the honeycombs are emptied in a centrifugal spinner and coarse filtered to remove the larger particles of wax etc. It is then pumped into a settling tank which as the name suggests, settles the honey and floats the smaller particles to the surface which can then be skimmed off.

The Honey is now ready for  creaming (a process that produces a soft set honey that is ideal for spreading). This process churns the Honey for a few hours and then it is ready to be put into jars.
