The Buzz Honey is a small family business established in 2016 to produce pure honey initially for ourselves, family and friends. Word spread on the great taste and consistency and we scaled up production in response to demand. Our honey is produced by bees in both traditional and improved hives sited on our own land in Kitui County. The local vegetation, principally Acacia, produces a dark to light brown, rich honey. We harvest the honey ourselves and process this on site in a KEBS approved facility through simple cold filtration to remove wax and impurities. Nothing is added and nothing is taken away resulting in a fine, pure honey.
2019 has seen us start work with other local farmers in Kitui and Machakos, sourcing honey from known farms to meet the growing demand of our honey. We believe this is a positive direction for The Buzz Honey as we are supporting local farmers to earn an income and also increasing the bee keeping practices which have been on a decline within the region.
