We are Beekeepers from Loughrea Co Galway in the west of Ireland located on the Sliabh Aughty Mountains. We are a family run business. A proud family tradition going back four generations.
The land on the mountain is natural and unspoiled with lots of lush meadows full of wild flowers and herbs, raised bog areas, covered with purple heather and bog cotton, a large proportion of the mountain is now an area of conservation. The mix of farming land and rugged mountain give us a great range of flora from the peaty and limestone soil. Typical plants are pussy willow, Elderberry, Sycamore, Dandelion, Whitethorn, Chestnut, clover, Blackberry, wild herbs and Heather.
