Delicious Local Honey at Hamble Point Marina

Posted: 17th November 2016

Bee-Utiful environment  - Hamble Point Marina helps spread the love (on toast!)

We are offering you the chance to purchase delicious local honey from the marina office at Hamble Point Marina.

The bees roam freely over the area around the river Hamble from just north of Swanwick to south of Hamble Point Marina. The (always female) workers feed on the trees, meadows, river banks and crops from the local farms turning the nectar in to honey.The frames (where they store the honey) are then hand spun, the honey gently collected and jarred. This simple thousand-year-old process ensures that the structure of the honey is not corrupted by the use of heat (all commercial honey is heated to ensure best yield) and also ensures that you get the best of the taste and goodness from the honey.

Hand spun honey will help with most ailments but has been widely recognised as having a huge positive effects on hay fever sufferers who take a tea spoonful a day. The residual pollen in the honey helps create an immunity to spring and summer hay fever if taken regularly over the winter.

Also great in whiskey for those winter sniffles!

You can purchase a 340g jar for £5.00  from the marina office.
