This week GSPCA Honey has gone on sale at the GSPCA for £6 a jar.

On site at the GSPCA the Guernsey Beekeepers Association have a training apiary and have been on site with us since the 16th May 2017.

There are a number of hives and the Guernsey Beekeepers use the GSPCA for training their members and those interested and they hold a number of events at the GSPCA each year.

 Globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats.

Local bees make local honey, which means the pollen they collect and bring back to the hive is all sourced from local plants. Since many seasonal allergies are caused by these same plants, eating honey that contains that pollen can possibly combat those allergies.

While no formal studies have been conducted on the effects of local honey on allergies, the idea behind trace-exposure to allergens in order to desensitize patients to food allergies is one that’s gaining steam.

In addition to potentially fighting allergies, one of the great benefits of local honey is that it’s unprocessed and pure. The products you find in the shops is often filtered, a process that removes the trace amounts of pollen it might contain. The purer the honey, the stronger its medicinal benefits, like potential anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Since bees are now endangered, it’s more vital than ever to support local beekeepers who are helping raise and maintain healthy bees.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager “It is a real delight to have the Guernsey Beekeepers on site at the GSPCA with their training apiary as bees are integral in the world we live and an essential part of our environment.”

“The Guernsey Beekeepers Association recently donated jars of honey to the GSPCA as a way of saying thank you for using the field they have their hives and the jars are now on sale at our front desk and selling fast.”

“An interesting fact of the honey bee is that in each trip they do they will visit 50 to 100 flowers and in their lifetime each bee helps produce just 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey.”

“Each jar is on sale for £6 and with limited stock you need to get yours as soon as possible.”

“From all at the GSPCA a huge thanks to the Guernsey Beekeepers Association not only for this wonderful donation but also for all they do helping the bees in Guernsey and the environmental benefits.”
