The Haringey Teaching Apiary is a small cooperative that manages a few beehives at the Alexandra Palace Allotments and teaches people about beekeeping. This year we have some surplus honey and we're wondering about trying to sell it to raise money to help fund the running of the apiary.
Supermarkets charge about £2:50 for mass produced processed honey, or £4 for more natural honey, what would you pay for our local honey from flowers around the allotments and Alexandra Palace and bottled here on the Harringay Ladder? Would £5 a jar be excessive to help support the HTA?
There are rules about selling honey so its potentially a bit too much for us with our limited resources, but i thought i'd ask here to see if there was any interest. Is there? Let me know here or at xxxx
Update: Thanks for all the interest, but i'm getting flooded by requests! So removing my email and closing this discussion. I'll let you all know if/when the honey is available.
yes please! count me in for a jar.
Yes please! A bit late for this summer, but local honey will help combat hay fever too. (Apparently?!)

HaelanCentre sell Highgate Honey for £7 a jar, and have to ration it to 2 jars per person. So demand certainly there.
We would Ant.
Sounds wonderful. I would definitely be interested in a jar.
I would love some too!
After years of living in the South, I'm sufficiently degenerate as to use milk instead of water. But any sweetner tastes horrible to me
