Healthy Haven Carol Sing-A-Long We are pleased to announce that we have recently opened our rst ever Christmas pop-up shop at Furzedown Farm, Hart Hill in Hythe (entrance just opposite the Travellers Rest pub). We were thrilled earlier on in the year to receive a 3 star Great Taste Award and became the only honey in the country to have gained this many stars. Alongside our award winning honey we will be selling candles, insect hotels, lip balm, a variety of hampers as featured in the Telegraph and lots of other bee related gi s! e new shop is nestled in the old barn on the farm, and we hope that it marks the start of a new era for Furzedown Farm, originally founded by my parents back in the 60’s. It’s not Harrods, but we’ve put a lot of love into the little shop, which even features an antique egg incubator that was used by my Father back in the day. We’d love for you to pop in and say hello and we’d like to thank you in advance for supporting a local small business which means the world to us. Our opening times are as follows: Wednesday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm right up until the 23rd of December. Due to the free range exotic birds that live on the farm (including the famous peacocks), we kindly ask that you do not bring dogs. ank you and we are looking forward to seeing you!
