Cheshire-based Haughton Honey has won a place in the final
of the Great British Food Farm Produce Awards 2015. 
The honey was named as one of ten short-listed products in
the sweet preserves category of the awards, run by Great British Food Magazine. 
Bee farmer Cris Reeves, who launched Haughton Honey last
year, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in
the Great British Food Farm Produce Awards. 
“We receive great feedback from our customers about how much
they love Haughton Honey, but to be chosen for the shortlist of an award in a
national magazine is just amazing. It’s great exposure for the brand, and comes
as we prepare to celebrate our first birthday.”   
Made by English bees and bottled by Haughton Honey, which is
based at Radmore Farm, Haughton, in Cheshire, the brand is probably the most
unadulterated honey that you can buy, added Cris. 
Featuring traces of dandelion, chestnut, lime, blackberry,
clover and other wildflowers, Haughton Honey is cold extracted to protect the
natural enzymes and proteins that make English honey so tasty. 
Five pence from the sale of each jar of Haughton Honey is
donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to help protect bumblebees, and
preserve and restore their habitats. It is vegetarian friendly and is 100%
natural and pure. 
Tom Shingler, deputy editor of Great British Food Magazine,
said of the awards: “We had a record-breaking 353 entries from 242 companies,
making this the biggest awards yet. For us, provenance was a priority.” 
Cris, who has been a bee farmer for more than ten years,
owns 300 hives. He is supplementing his supply
of honey from apiaries all run by experienced bee farmers, and now
has more than 1,600 hives in the cooperative, stretching across the North West
and the Midlands, including Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. 
Haughton Honey is sold in more than 60 stores, as well as
being available direct to customers via its website Stockists
include Walter Smith Fine Food at Bridgemere Garden World near Nantwich in
Cheshire, reputedly the largest garden centre in Europe, the Gift Shop at
Chester Cathedral, Tatton Park shop, Amaranth Wellbeing in Bramhall, a health
and wellbeing retailer that recently won Best Independent Retailer of The Year
in the Natural & Organic Awards, and Cheerbrook Farm Shop, the multi-award
winning farm shop situated outside of Nantwich. 
“We’re so excited with the news
that our honey has been chosen as a finalist in such a high-profile awards
scheme, and would really like to thank our customers and our stockists, who
have been really supportive of Haughton Honey,” added Cris. 
Winners of the Great British Food Farm Produce Awards 2015
will be announced on 29th June 2015.
