We are proud to stock delicious Sinah Common Honey which is locally sourced from Hayling Island a short distance from us on the Coast.
Sinah Common Honey dates back to 1991 when Founder John Geden first started selling honey from his front door and at markets to the local community. They currently manage two hundred colonies of bees in fifteen apiaries!
Their Hayling Island production apiaries are located within the foraging area within which Sinah Common is located and they also have bees north of Hayling Island located in the glorious Hampshire countryside bordering the Solent; their honey is consistently rich, golden and clear, and full of local healthy goodness. Some people have even said that they even get a slight whiff and taste of the sea from the honey! This is not surprising considering their location on the beautiful southern coastal waters on all sides. The pollen and nectar bearing flowers that the bees visit will get some of their moisture from the salt air and sea spray.
Buying honey locally has even been said to help elevate symptoms of hayfever and we have lots of customers popping into The Old Piggery especially for this!
All of the honey is beautifully packaged and you can even pick up a wooden honey drizzle stick when you come in!
Thank you John and the team at Sinah and thank you to all those busy bees!
