Galtee Honey Farm
Micheál and Aoife Mac Giolla Coda produce beautiful honeys. Their 150 hives of pure native black bees range over the county borders of Cork, Limerick and Tipperary, all the better that the bees can distill the floral essence of the Galtee Valley. The raw honeys are things of rare purity, with the bees feasting on horse chestnut, blackberry blossom, clover, heather and hawthorn amidst a plethora of flora. No sugar is added to the honey, and it is not pasteurised. In an age of hyper-processed food, the Galtee honeys are a most valuable antidote, a food for your health, for your micro-biome, a food for your senses, for these are wondrously complex, organoleptically exciting honeys. Aoife and Micheal are both bee keeping lecturers, so their expertise is formidable. But so, too, is their modesty, and their humility: like all the best beekeepers, they are filled with a sense of wonderment. And when you get a taste of these superb honeys, you will taste that very wonderment on your tongue.
