We have 5 Yards for 2023 and each Yard is described below and our Jars of Honey are unique and they state from which Yard the Honey has come from using a 4 Letter Yard Code system, which is hand written on the side of each jar. Each Yard will produce a Honey with a different taste and scent and color, dependant on the Flora available to the Bees. Scroll down to learn more about each Yard.
