Welcome to The Honey Pot, the home of Local Honey
Many beekeepers are finding their hives are using up their stores at an alarming rate, see ‘Feeding Bees’ on the products/ cash and carry page for some useful advise.

Tony Maggs started The Honey Pot back in 1990 at Markeaton Park Craft Village in Derby, UK, in the East Midlands, to provide a link between beekeeping and the public.
The beekeepers come to buy all of their beekeeping equipment, and the public come to buy their local honey and products of the hive by our own bees.
All of the honey we sell comes from near by at our own apiaries , so we sell direct to the customer.
Local Honey is nature’s direct health food, do not confuse or compare local honey with the majority of honey available in the shops, this is imported and the methods used cannot be guaranteed.
Here in Britain, local honey will normally have the name of the county on the label and the beekeepers name and address.
