Lucy’s Bees Local Nottinghamshire Honey. Lucy extracts honey at room temperature using a hand spinning extractor. Lucy’s Honey can be classed as Raw and Unfiltered.
Raw meaning not heated above the Hives natural temperature, which is around 36 Degrees Celsius. Unfiltered meaning honey is sieved to remove large chunks of beeswax, but not put through a fine strainer which would remove small pollen particles
This Spring Honey is made by Lucy’s Bees who visited a range of Spring flowers in the local area.
Spring flowers with a few miles of the Bee Hives;
- Flowering Fruit Trees
- Plum Blossom
- Bramley Apple Blossom
- Damson Blossom
- Pear Blossom
- Crab Apple Blossom

Lucy’s Bees are located a few miles from the famous touristic small village of Southwell and the Historically important Town of Newark. The bees will forage up to 5 miles as the crow or bee flies.
Spring Honey usually Granulates
All Pure Honey will granulate. In fact this change is the best proof of its quality. It can easily be restored to the liquid state.
1) Loosed the top and stand the jar in hot water. Heat very gently until the honey becomes liquid.
2) Put the jar into a warm environment such as an airing cupboard, the window ledge of a sunny conservatory or a warming cupboard for a few hours
3) Remove cap and place in a microwave oven on the lowest power. Remember the honey in the centre of the jar will continue to become liquid after the heating time has finished.
If you or a friend suffers from Hay fever more in the Spring than any other time, I would recommend Spring honey for the Spring Pollen and other goodness in the honey.
