If you're arrived on this page in the first half of the year, you'll see that the bee population is steadily climbing. The queen starts increased egg laying activity at around Christmas time, and then starts to build the colony size throughout spring in readiness for the nectar flow and honey production.
Once summer is over, and the nectar is tailing off, the colony decreases in size throughout the autumn until it's at its smallest, just before midwinter.
We are unbelievably excited to announce that our Scottish heather honey has become the first ever food product in the UK to be awarded the new British Standards Institution (BSI) Kitemark™ for Food Assurance.
At The Scottish Bee Company we are passionate about pollinators and increasing the amount of wildflower spaces is a company priority!
All our fully packaged gift options come with a pack of wildflower seeds and for every jar of honey sold we make a donation to Repollinate
