As a shiny new year begins, we review our progress in 2015. Our honeys are now available in seventeen shops and delis in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Lincolnshire. The Natural Food Store in Diss kindly hosted our first ever tasting and have continued to show us their support, Raysa and I are very grateful to Marian, Monique, Alice, et al. We then went on to take part in shows and events in Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Clacton, Woodbridge and Long Melford, culminating at The BBC Good Food show in Birmingham.
We have learnt a lot over our first few months of trading and met some lovely people.
Our online sales are growing including repeat orders of multiple jars.
Many of our online customers are people we have met at the various events we attended, it’s really nice to know they stuck with us….no pun intended.
While at the BBC Good Food show we met many traders and made some good industry contacts.
Our plans for 2016, definitely more events, we will announce them on our website and Facebook. More honey! We are in contact with various beekeepers, and looking at some new honey varieties. This will involve a trip to Siberia at some point, more on that later.
