Just sharing some of our excitement at Croakham Farm with our first honey of the year - 76lb - the first for 3 years as we've had no summer for ages so we're happy with that. The farm next door has been good enough to plant lots of Oil Seed Rape - great for bees and bad for hay-fever...

At one point, a couple of 2-year-old twins, a 6, 8 and 10 year-old were all "helping" at once!

Maybe we will see a decent summer this year.
