Will Jones has honey jars for sale. They are the popular 8oz size and are 38p each. Given the weak sterling at the minute, this represents a good price and he doesn't make a profit.

​

If you are interested in buying some jars, please contact Will on 07380 374560

1 cup coconut oil

2 teaspoons honey

1/2 teaspoon vitamin E (to preserve)

1/2 teaspoon flavouring oil: eg. ginger, peppermint, or similar.

BEEKEEPING SUPPLIES

​

 If you are in need of beekeeping supplies, 

Sam Laverty is now offering a wax trade-in service.

​

As he is working with Donegal bees (who make wax foundation) the prices are in Euro, but he will convert to sterling at daily rate. You just need the wax melted and re-set. It does not need to be especially clean.

​

2.50 euro / LB if exchanging for foundation. No cash involved.

2.00 euro /LB outright money exchange.

​

Sam can be contacted on 07976 084855. He is based Macosquin, Coleraine.
