Earthy Roots produces honey and beeswax from our own apiaries which are among the products available for sale through our online shop. In Addition to selling honey, we also create natural lip balms, muscle rubs, beard oils and a range of gifts.
It all started by a chance meeting with a lovely couple who kept bees. They taught me how to inspect a hive and how to maintain the equipment. They educated me in bee husbandry, looking out for disease and monitoring the development of a colony. Sadly they both passed away donating all of their equipment and knowledge. This humble beginning has now developed into Earthy Roots Ltd.
The Water Newton Apiary main nectar flow comes from wildflowers and trees around the local area which includes Ferry Meadows part of Nene Park.
Around Glatton the main nectar flow comes from oil seed rape which flowers early in the season. Following this, the nectar flow comes from blackberries, thistles and clover as well as wild flowers and trees within the surrounding area.
At Old Weston Apiary our bees forage from a range of vegetable and fruit plants from raspberries to pumpkins. The garden farm also grows many companion plants which encourage different types of pollinators including marigolds and borage.
Our honey is as natural as it gets.
Frames filled with golden raw honey are harvested straight from the hives then the thin layer of beeswax holding the honey in is removed using a knife.
The frames with the honey now free flowing are then placed within a honey extractor and are spun removing the honey.
After a period of time the honey settles to the bottom of the extractor. The honey is then filtered to remove any debris such as beeswax. Whilst ensuring the natural grains of pollen remain.
If you wish to make your crystallised honey runny all you need to do is place it in a bowl of warm water. Wait a little while and enjoy.
Or if you prefer a honey with a silky smooth texture try our soft set honey.
Some people will place their jar on a warm radiator. The natural goodness of raw honey will be preserved at lower temperatures.
