Beehives have a Queen,
Honey has a King.
Melisseus (Pronounced Mel-e-SOOS) takes its name from the famed King of Crete,
Legend has it that the Greek Goddess Rhea appeared before the King and his two daughters at the royal palace frantically pleading with them to hide a small child away from an evil spirit. They took pity on him and hid him in the palace, lovingly nurturing him on milk and the King’s own honey.
Reared on honey and love, the child grew up to be a pitcure of strength. Now a towering figure, he was ready to fight the evil spirit; It was only then he chose to reveal himself as Zeus, King of all the Gods!
From that day the name Melisseus became synonymous with only the finest quality honey. Our family owned and run apiary does everything possible to live up to that standard. Our honey is raw, totally unprocessed, hand spun and unpasturised, so all of the natural goodness you expect to find in raw honey stays locked in every jar. We know you’ll enjoy it.
