John Mellis's 400 bee colonies are based in the low intensity farmland and diverse woodlands of south west Scotland. The bees produce dark, nutty spring honey, delicate summer blossom, a heath and wildflower blend and heather honey. The majority is sold through retail outlets around the UK, as well as direct to customers who come to the honey farm - this is done on quite an informal basis as it's close to the Mellis family home, so if you call ahead they'll nip down and serve you seven days a week, 9am–9pm.
