How did the Honey Stash begin?
Well... It all started with a phone call. A beekeeper had heard that there was a lady, who had a Organic farm up on Strawberry Hill.
The farmer was Caroline (my mum) and that beekeeper was David Wainwright!
When David arrived with his bee hives, Caroline insisted on helping out. Together in the rain Strawberry Hill apiary was established... and so was a relationship!
With a beekeeper now in the family an interest in bees and honey began.
A few months later, we placed some hives in our 100 acre woodland on the farm on Salisbury plain.
A rich array of wild flowers,
sainfoin, clover and lime trees.
Last September the bees at the Warren lent us supers from the hives as seating for our wedding in the magical woodland.
My partner Dean and i (Jodie) soon found ourselves at Bath Farmers Market. Selling honey of course!
What we thought was a nice weekend job soon became our work. As David placed more apiaries in and around Salisbury Plain, We joined more markets and sold more honey.
Each apiary produced a very different honey, each honey with its own unique flavour. Labelled with recognisable place names, being local, pure and delicious, Wainwright's Bee Farm flourished!
Our Customers loved the honey and we loved our customers! We dabbled in beekeeping but front line at the markets was our place.
So here we are 5 years later, continuing to sell not only honey but honeycomb, candles and beeswax wraps (made with our own beeswax)
