National Honey Week

National Honey Week runs from 23-29th October and is a way of celebrating the honey crop and recognising the vital role of the honey bee to our environment and way of life.

The British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) celebrates Honey Week each, to coincide with the publication of its annual Honey Survey, and the National Honey Show.

The honey crop is considered an indicator of the state of the natural world. For example, a poor honey crop could suggest bad weather, a lack of forage or a weakness in the honey bee colony, which is why the results to the BBKA Honey Survey are of such national interest.
