Gooey sticky honey
Maintaining the hives on the estate is an important part of outdoor conservation at Kingston Lacy. The raw honey produced by the bees is bottled and ready to take home from the shop.
The honeybees regularly feed on the pollen in the from areas in the main gardens and espcially the Kitchen Garden. The gardeners are consciously planting more flowers, trees and shrubs which bloom throughtout the year meaning there is more pollen readily avaliable.
Craving something sweet?
We recommend a big dollop of Kingston Lacy honey on some natural yogurt or treat your morning toast to a thick spread. In the National Trust cookbook you will also find some great recipes using honey, including warming autumnal dishes like honeyed pork casserole and honey-roasted swede soup.
