Healy’s Honey – a family-run business based in Co. Cork – is one of Ireland’s oldest farm producers.

Healy’s Honey was set up over 40 years ago by Patrick Healy, a keen beekeeper, who cultivated his hobby into a successful business. Three generations on, the company strives to continue the traditions and values Patrick initiated, with superior excellence remaining a primary focus.

Given its limited number of hives, Healy’s has gone out of its way to seek connections with fellow beekeepers worldwide. It collaborates with these keepers, who share its views regarding the practice of sustainable beekeeping and in gently handled honey.

Together it works to blend unique and distinctive honeys that have won many Taste Awards. Healy’s Honey produces a variety of honey types and its advanced technology means it can be supplied in combs, jars, squeezy bottles, buckets or barrels.
