This page displays locally-produced honey and hive products. These are offered for sale by local beekeepers and their contact details can be found here. Most Meridian members have eaten or sold their 2020 crop (independent grocers have an insatiable appetite for local honey!) but keep an eye on this page, more will be offered in the coming months.
This honey is produced by the members of Meridian Beekeepers at our teaching apiary in Swanmore. Our bees forage on a wide range of local plants and trees including crops, garden and wildflowers. Although we have a few hives in the same place, the honey from each can be completely different as their bees collect nectar from different places. These 454g (1lb) jars are offered for sale at £8. They may be obtained from Louise, 01489 781155 firstname.lastname@example.org The proceeds go to Meridian Beekeepers.
Louise is one of Meridian’s longest standing members and has been keeping bees for many years. Most of her hives are in the Botley area and her bees work on the diverse forage that characterises our area; a mixture of garden flowers, trees and wildflowers from the fields and woodlands nearby.

Louise also has a range of candles made from beeswax. Unlike any other type of candle, beeswax is non-toxic when it burns. They give off a naturally beautiful smell and burn brightly. They are the only candles to omit negative ions which purify the air and are hypo-allergenic, so beneficial to those who suffer from environmental allergies.
