South Kerry Honey BeeWelcome

South Kerry Natural Irish Honey Producers is an active honey producers group. The group consists of ten members each currently having at least five honeybee hives.

The Group is South Kerry based and fortunate to have members in the Kenmare, Killarney, Killorglin and Cahirciveen areas. The members have been active as a group for the past four years with information sharing and training sessions in relation to bee husbandry and honey gathering, marketing and sale of their produce. All members are involved in honey production on a part-time basis. The group has been assisted by the South Kerry Development Partnership through the administrative and organisational inputs of its development officer and with LEADER funding.

South Kerry Honey BeeProducts

Mid August the honey is removed and extracted from the comb and either jarred or stored in large plastic containers and jarred later as required. This honey is called run honey and is jarred by the group in 12 oz round or hexogen jars. Section and cut-comb honey is also available by the group.
