Bees are quite amazing, aren’t they? They’re just buzzing around, collecting pollen and turning it in to honey like it’s nothing, but it’s really something. Honey is one of my favourite toast accompaniments, my favourite being set honey – I love the slight grainy texture and softer flavour.
Last weekend I went to visit a friend who has just moved to Berwick-upon-Tweed. As she’s new to the area we did a little exploring in the beautiful nearby countryside and came across the Chain Bridge Honey Farm, complete with shop, visitors centre and a cafe on a double decker.
The farm sits on the River Tweed which marks the border between Scotland and England, a short walk away is the Union Chain Bridge, named because it connects the two nations and was built, in 1820, using Welsh steel. It’s a really pretty spot and you can have some fun being in Scotland with one step and England the next!
