In the first installment in our Stories from the Field video series, we visit consultant beekeeper Peter Hunt on Dartmoor.

Peter supplies the Real Food Store with excellent honey from his Devon-based bees.

We spoke to Peter about the basics of beekeeping, the important role played by independent producers and why it is so important to buy local when choosing honey.

Our Stories from the Field series is an initiative to help connect people with the food they buy.

The Real Food Store operates a stringent purchasing policy: we source ethical products from local, independent suppliers. Our mission is to support the local food economy of Exeter and its surroundings so that local people have better access to locally grown and produced food.

This is good for people, good for the planet and good for the local economy.
