Upcoming Henley Business
Honeys of Henley
We, at Honeys of Henley, believe in our local bees and the extraordinary honey they produce. Our bees have access to the widest range of wild and cultivated plants throughout the Chilterns and Thames Valley. We have eight apiaries in and around Henley (from small beginnings of three hives in a client’s town garden, we now manage 140 plus hives). Nigel and I are commercial bee farmers, and yet stick to a traditional approach of processing – we process the honey in small batches, so we can tell you which apiary and hive produced your jar. This small batch processing allows us to bring distinctly different honeys to our customers.
In peak season we offer cut comb honey (nothing quite like it). We manufacture Beeswax wraps as an alternative to plastic food wrap using our own wax. We were recently accredited for Cosmetic legislation, which will support our aim for producing simple cosmetics using honey, wax and propolis.
We sell at local markets primarily Henley Farmers, 2nd Saturday, 4th Thursday, 5th Sunday every month, and through local shops: Machins Butcher, Bodywise Healthfood, Toadhall Garden Centre and Berries Cafe. You can also find us at Caversham, Wallingford and Woodley Market, and other independent stockists in surrounding towns and villages.
Because we offer wholesale, we are able to collaborate with other manufacturers, for example, Gelato Henley – anyone for Honeycomb ice cream?
