Meet our Producer of the Year 2017

In this section

Michael Coe has been producing clear and set honey for the East of England Co-op since 2012. Great Tilkey Honey started supplying just a handful of shops and today supplies stores across Essex and Suffolk.

From very humble beginnings, with 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.

If you’ve been to an East of England Co-op store or popped along to their marquee at one of the county shows and been greeted by bees, it’s very likely you’ve met Michael. During the summer months Michael takes his bees to events to help people learn more about the insect and how honey is produced.
