Naturally Proud

All over the world people are celebrating Pride Month; you might have seen on my instagram story the video I shared of Ellen Degeneres and the powerful montage of people coming out for the first time, and confidently declaring their sexuality. I don’t have much of a public voice; but I do have one, and I’m privileged to be in a position where I have a platform for speech and have people who are interested in what I have to say. If in the 15,000 or so people following me on social media what I am about to say helps just 1 person, I know the pain that it will soothe.

The World’s First Virtual Honey Tasting Experience!

We think we’ve created another world first!

Join us from the comfort of your own home for this brand new, exciting digital tasting experience, bringing the irresistible taste of raw, British honey directly to you in our unique Online Honey Tasting Experience.

Back in 2018 my honey farm became the world’s first certified Carbon Neutral honey farm, and since then we’ve welcomed hundreds of people each year to the farm on our workshops and experience days.

What’s Happenned

I sat down with my team last week at the farm (socially distanced, of course) and we began to hatch a plan as to how we could make our workshops and experience days work with social distancing measures, in preparation for an announcement from the Government, at some point in the future, that would allow us to invite you here again.

Many of you have purchased – or been gifted by others – places on our 2020 beekeeping, rural craft and gardening workshops and experience days, and we are immensely grateful to you all for your patience and for ‘hanging on’! 

The pizza oven is never ‘closed’ at this time of the year!

Much of the practical elements like how we would arrange the refreshments; changes we’d need to make to our ‘build your own’ pizza lunch, and how we’d ensure everyone was able to keep a reassuring 2 metres from others, were all simply thought out. I’ll be honest with you
