The Story of the Producer
Deise Honey comes to us from Pat & Sheila Deasy of We Bee Farm in West Waterford, producing high quality local honey from their apiaries in the Blackwater and Bride river valleys. All of the Deasy’s bees are native dark bees; Pat has a passion for nature and is the chairman of the Native Irish Honey Bee Society. The Deasy’s also provides a crop pollination service to farmers in the area. The nectar & pollen are sourced from the local orchards, the flowering agricultural crops and the natural flora of the valleys, giving the honey a distinct floral taste. The main crop is harvested in late August. As with all small batch production there are fluctuations of availability to coincide with the seasons and nature.
