About Highgate Honey

We are a family in North London with a couple of bee hives on our roof.

We are particularly fascinated by the variation in tastes and colours of honey that are produced by the same hives throughout the season. We extract our honey in small batches every few weeks over the summer to try and capture these differences. We watch to see which flowers we see bees foraging on in our local area, so we get an idea about which nectars may be in the honey.
