A friend of my wife's keeps a few hives and sells the honey. I'll check tomorrow if he still has any (I guess the bees are not producing any at the moment).

There's a lady down Bachelor's Way who keeps bees and sells honey - not sure of the house number 5 or 7 - there's a small notice in the window by the front door.

We've bought this honey before - just knocked on her door as we passed the house one day. It was delicious.

Yes I used to get mine from Healthright.Apparently local honey is menat to help alleviate the sysmtpons of hayfever, though I'm a bit sceptical.Heres a link to the local produce market in Chesham:

You can buy local honey in the Friends shop at the Chiltern Open Air Musem. The COAM is on Gorelands Lane in Chalfont St Giles. I must say the COAM is a local hidden gem. More than worth a visit.
