    In April, we welcomed the arrival of bees from The Sheffield Honey Company. Owner, Jez Daughtry (pictured above with Rupert) launched the company in 2010 and is an artisan producer of premium quality local English honey and pure beeswax products.

    The bees are settling in nicely and enjoying the extensive gardens at Baslow Hall. Last week, the new wooden hives were installed within the idyllic area of the grounds. Rupert Rowley uses the Blossom Honey on the Taste of Britain menu with Yorkshire Blue. Our residents also enjoy the honey at breakfast!
