J. Friend and Co Beechwood Honeydew honey is harvested in the native Mountain Beech forests in the Mount Thomas, Oxford area in New Zealand's South Island. The high concentration of red beech trees in this region, as opposed to mainly black beech in other areas, creates a very floral honeydew.

 

Flavour strength: Bold

Beechwood Honeydew Honey is a connoisseur's honey. It is a naturally dark amber liquid honey, resembling golden syrup, with a bold pungent nose. It has floral and rose flavours with earthy undertones and hints of vanilla and malt.

Ideal for sweetening smoothies or for drizzling over roast meat, pancakes, porridge, yoghurt or cheese

Beechwood Honeydew is a very unique honey, as unlike most other honeys it’s not created from the nectar of flowers. Within the intricate eco-system of the forest, honeydew is created by tiny insects that feed on the sap in the bark of the beech tree and then excrete this in sugary liquid drops.
This liquid is high in sugar and is an attractive energy source for the honeybees.

Steven has always been fascinated by bees.   Beekeeping for over 30 years, his early days were spent working alongside another Artisan beekeeper- learning the craft.  From there he went on to owning his own beekeeping business, which after 25 years he still finds exciting and challenging.  For many years, the focus has been on Beechwood Honeydew Honey   Beechwood Honeydew is collected in the spring and autumn months.
