In a campus first, honey produced from beehives located within the University’s grounds will be on sale at a series of seasonal pop-up stalls starting this week.
Two varieties of honey — gathered from beehives at King’s Meadow Campus and at Bunny Park (farmland near Sutton Bonington Campus) — will be available. The different landscape settings are reflected in the flavour and colour of the two varieties.
Stalls selling University honey will be at the following locations:
The limited edition University honey is priced at £5.50, with an offer to buy 2 jars for £10. Please note that all sales are cash only.
There will also be opportunities to purchase the University of Nottingham Campus Wildlife Calendar 2018, featuring some of the most photogenic #beastsofUoN from across our UK and Asia campuses.
Proceeds from honey and calendar sales will contribute to the University’s Environment Initiative Fund, which provides grants to student or staff-led sustainability projects.
To find out more about projects to enhance the biodiversity of our campuses, visit our sustainability webpages.

Hi Colin. Unfortunately all of this year’s stock has sold now but we hope to have more toward the end of the year. Best wishes – Rebecca
