Great Tilkey Honey

The bees’ knees of honey!

Michael Coe (owner of Great Tilkey Honey) has been producing clear and set honey for East of England Co-op stores since 2012. From humble beginnings, Michael’s cottage industry certainly impressed an expert panel of local food and farming experts, including: Terry Hunt, former Editor of the EADT; Emma Hibbert, Adnam’s Corporate Affairs Manager and Lord Iveagh from Elveden Estates, when they crowned Great Tilkey Honey Producer of the Year.

From just one hive in his back garden and a converted shed for jarring, Great Tilkey Honey has evolved into an established business with a bespoke extraction unit, six apiaries across Essex and Suffolk and a strong customer following.
