About Us: The Story of Boyne Valley Honey

 Boyne Valley Honey has brought pure natural honey to Irish families for over 50 years. Our delicious honey is packed in Mell, Drogheda, Co. Louth. In a wonderful coincidence, Mell takes its name from the Irish word for honey – mil and in fact, in old maps of Drogheda, the laneway across from the Boyne Valley Honey Company was called Honey Well lane!

Honey is embedded in the history of the Boyne Valley. In fact, the Boyne Valley Honey Company is situated close to the site of Old Mellifont Abbey. Mellifont Abbey takes its name from Fons Mellis – The Fountain of Honey. It was the first Cistercian Monastery in Ireland founded by St. Malachy in 1142 and the monks at Mellifont were renowned beekeepers. The location of this historic monastery was probably chosen for its suitability for the cultivation of bees.

Today, the Boyne Valley Honey Company prides itself on being the Honey Specialists, with a range of honeys including runny honey, varietal honeys, manuka honeys and Yummy Honey. View our Products for more information.
