Celtic Mead by Shire Honey

Celtic Mead by Shire Honey is produced at a micro meadery on the outskirts of York. It is run by Peter a 3rd generation bee keeper. This year he gained three firsts, a second and a reserve champion at the Great Yorkshire Show for his Meads.
Some of the flavours he produces, which we stock at Roots include:
  • Traditional Mead – Made with mainly heather honey giving a full honey flavour
  • Elderflower Mead – A beautiful blend of honey and floral notes
  • Elderberry Mead – A medium sweet mead with the elderberry fruit giving a rich fruit and light port flavour
  • Spiced Mead – A lightly spiced, medium sweet mead. Warm gently with a slice of orange for a fabulous winter tipple.

Roots Farm Shop Quality

At Roots Farm Shop we are passionate about food, farming and the community.

Our producers are selected for the quality of their produce and their eco approach to farming and food production.  We are proud to stock produce from these local, independent companies who work with the environment when producing delicious food and drink.

We aim to connect the wider community, our customers, who want to shop in a more sustainable way.

In recent years, there has been a growing movement towards more ethical food production methods, driven by concerns about the sustainability of our current food system and the implications of the way we produce our food.  This is one of the fundamental principles of everything we do at Roots as we ourselves at Home Farm, work towards regenerative farming with our herd of grass fed beef cows.
