Welcome to Sinah Common Honey
We are a small scale local producer of natural raw honey managing approximately 200 colonies of honeybees on fiteen apiary sites. Our apiaries are located on Hayling Island and also to the north of the island, on the mainland, nestled away in beautiful countryside on the south side of the South Downs.
Our bees produce raw natural honey from the nectar of plants in very specific geographic areas; bees typically have a maximum foraging range of 3 miles radius from their hives, thus we can be entirely confident about where the pollen and nectar originates from that goes into every jar of delicious Sinah Common Honey.
