Brockwell Park Honey

Did you know they have bee hives in Brockwell Park? Well, I didn’t but they do and the honey those bees make is very special, so special that the folk at Petersham nurseries use it and now East Dulwich Deli is selling it. It’s not cheap, but it’s produced on a small scale, locally to you. And honey from London bees tastes particularly amazing because of the diversity of flowers in the city, far more complex than the common old single-crop honey from country bees. So there.
Landcroft House plans to be enjoying it on our toast all week and won’t be wasting a drop of it on the under-5’s flapjacks we’re making later for tomorrow’s zoo trip.

My Mum makes honey from the bees she keeps on her allotment in Dulwich. I'll get you a jar if you want.
