Since 1960 Boyne Valley has brought the sunshine goodness of natural honey to Irish families
The temperature is dropping almost daily (despite the occiasional bouts of beautiful autumn sunshine), and at this time of year it’s roundly known the best way to start the day is with a bowl of wholesome, hearty porridge. Making those mornings a little sweeter is the perfect porridge partner: Boyne Valley Honey, a staple of Irish cupboards since 1960.
A family-owned Irish business, for generations Boyne Valley has been in operation in the town of Mell, Drogheda, Co. Louth. Honey is synonymous with Mell, which takes its name from the Irish word for honey – mil. The Boyne Valley Honey Company is situated close to the site of Old Mellifont Abbey, which takes its name from Fons Mellis – The Fountain of Honey. The area is steeped in honey history as the Fons Mellis was the first Cistercian Monastery in Ireland founded by St. Malachy in 1142, and the monks at Mellifont were renowned beekeepers. In keeping with this tradition, Boyne Valley Honey still offers the finest honey in Ireland for Irish families to enjoy for generations to come.
Drizzle a little over your morning oats for a healthy way to sweeten up your day!
