Radmore Farm at Haughton in Cheshire began harvesting raw English honey straight from the hive in 2014. Now they’ve launched a 900g pot, the equivalent of two and a half jars, of their 100 per cent natural honey featuring traces of dandelion, chestnut, blackberry, clover and other wild flowers
Bread for life
Two things to look out for in the world of bread – Heart of Nature‘s delicious traditional Polish flour- and yeast-free wholegrain, superseed, chia and rye loaves in six varieties including plum, goji berry and cranberry; and an initiative from the Breadwinners Foundation who are offering unemployed Londoners the opportunity to build a fresh bread delivery business, delivering bread from artisan bakers (Celtic Bakers and Gails to date) to the doorsteps of time-challenged, loaf-fancying Londoners.
BioSnacky Desk Allotment
Tragic desk-bound workers can add a breath of green to their indoor lives with a BioSnacky Desk Allotment. Yes, BioSnacky sounds horrible, but ‘desk allotment’ conjures up all kinds of delightful visions – many fulfilled by this ingenious gadget which allows you to grow your own sprouting seeds (alfalfa, mung bean, red clover, quinoa and so on; there’s even a menopause seed pack) on a desk or windowsill, before harvesting for mini leaves to go in lunchtime sandwiches or on to salads.
