The Welsh Honey Co.
“We are delighted to welcome The Welsh Honey Co to the Discover Delicious community. Their floral, raw Welsh honeys are the perfect addition to any foodie’s store cupboard!”
Beekeeping has been in the family since 1969 at The Welsh Honey Company. Our raw Welsh honey is made by busy bees collecting the nectar and pollen from a wide variety of flowers from all across Wales.
It all began back in 1969 when my grandfather started beekeeping in his back garden with one or two hives as a hobby. My grandfather grew his hive numbers over the years and in 2014, I was invited to visit the hives along with my local primary school. This is where my experience with bees began. From then on, I started beekeeping with my grandfather every Sunday morning. We would visit the local association and then visit the apiaries straight after. At 11 years of age, I was given my first hive.
In early 2017 my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer and suddenly passed away. At the time, I had just turned 15 and with nobody else in the family that kept bees, I inherited all 30 hives. My dad was roped into starting beekeeping despite being petrified of bees!
This is where The Welsh Honey Company started.
In 2021 we are still a family run business with the same passion for our bees, Welsh honey and our amazing customers who make The Welsh Honey Company so special.
"My passion for beekeeping stems from my relationship with my grandfather, who taught me everything I know."
