Our Honey has a Name!

We are delighted to announce the winning name for our very own KU honey from the hives at Kingston Hill. ‘Honey from the Hill’ was a popular suggestion among 130 entries from staff and students to the ‘Name our Honey’ competition, but the early bird catches the worm (or in this case the prize jar of honey!). 

Here is our proud new name and label for the limited 26 jars of honey we harvested this summer

So congratulations to Jackie Deacon, administrative officer from SEC, and Creative Writing and History student Steve Kent. Another jar has gone to Daron Tribe, Student Management Information officer from Avionics, for his witty suggestion ‘Fed By Learning’ which will be used as a strapline.

Other highly commended suggestions included the poetic 'Hilltop Honey' and a pun on the name of the historic Coombe estate, 'Honey Coombe', courtesy of Martin Sargeant, Cécile Burton, Lauren Jones, Graham Mahon and Gillian Harding. Huge thanks to them and everyone who entered the competition.

As stocks are low there's not enough to go around so we will not be selling our honey this year. Instead, dedicated volunteers from 2013 will each receive a jar in gratitude for their contribution and everyone will get the chance to try Honey from the Hill in March at our honey tasting event. Look out for more details in February!
