Hiveshare news: Hiveshare 2017 runs from September 2016, Hiveshare Cert no. 1178 and higher. Lots of 2017 Hivesharers wrote asking could they meet us and collect the honey. So we are arranging a couple of collection points in Dublin - Blackrock and Rathmines during October and November.
Meet Ailbhe, pick up your Hiveshare and have a chat about the farm and your honey.
Let us know if you would like to meet and collect your honey - email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll arrange a suitable collection time and place. Really looking forward to meeting you!
We have now harvested Brookfield Farm honey. We left the bees their share, and we have enough between our harvest and our mentor beekeeper to meet our Hiveshare commitments. Brookfield Farm is now filtering and jarring and packing honey boxes for Hivesharers. A busy, sticky, but very satisfying task.
There are a few different types of honey, depending on the flowers the bees visited - examples are blackberry and clover, with a contribution from tree blossoms and whitethorn, and some heather and ivy blends. We are allocating where possible different honey types to the Hivesharer allocations, so you can taste the natural differences.
Do let us know what you think!
