I live on the Leitrim/Cavan border in the hinterland of Ballinamore and Ballyconnel.
My organic raw honey is completely natural and dilution/chemical-free.

In the spring my bees forage on whin, sycamore, sally, bluebells, blackthorn, whitethorn and other native plants found in the hedgerows.

As the summer progresses, other sources become available such as horse chestnut, clover, dandelion and briars (mainly blackberry) are the most significant source for my bees.
Later in the summer, my bees work other flowers such as meadowsweet, willow-herb and cow parsley.
The nectar from these plants forms light coloured summer honey which sweet floral flavour makes it the most popular.

During August/September after I remove the summer crop, I move some of my beehives to local heather.
The heather honey is dependent on getting suitable weather conditions which gives my heather honey it’s distinctive appearance and flavour.
Heather honey has all of the antioxidant benefits of Manuka honey and more.

Throughout Autumn, my bees work on the plentiful local ivy.
The ivy provides the hives with their primary food for winter and gives me a small supply of ivy honey late in the year.
I always ensure my bees are cared for first before taking any honey.
The ivy honey has a distinctive flavour and tends to crystallise rapidly.
