Called by today on the way back from New Quay. Although only the shop is open during covid, glad we went and bought some honey mead, raspberry mead, honey and lip balm. Really nice little shop, worth a visit if nothing else, its supporting local businesses during this difficult time.

My family and I stopped off here after our trip to new quay . The woman that served us in the shop was unhelpful and not at all welcoming . Had to ask what the different honeys were like and didn’t even get offered to view any bees. Spent nearly £30 on honey and didn’t even get a thank you or goodbye . Just basic manners would of been nice.

Response from Sam C, Owner at New Quay Honey Farm
Responded 25 Aug 2020
Thank you for stopping by after your trip to New Quay and for your feedback. We have not long decided to open the shop and we are still finding our feet around our new system. Due to the worldwide pandemic, we have decided to not open the tea room and the bee exhibition this year. This is mainly due to doing our best to keeping the public and our staff as safe as possible. If you would still like some information on our honey please do not hesitate to give the office a call on 01545 560822 where a member of staff will happily talk through the products.

The bee exhibition is what it says on the tin, you get to see the bees up close and watch them making the honeycomb. A little bit expensive for what it is but interesting. The shop has some lovely products and you can taste the honeys and mead before you buy. The little tea shop is reasonably priced and the honey flapjack was delicious 😋 but my absolute favourite was THE OWLS 🦉Up close and personal with 4 beautiful birds, each with their own personality. Gary makes you feel very much at home and gives you a vast amount of information. I was so impressed with the price such good value for money!! We are here on holiday and this has to be one of the best parts of my holiday. Thank you 👍

We can normally find something good about most places, but I have to say this was a waste of money. A family ticket is around a £10 and you get to go up some stairs to see a few bees buzzing around in a box and some posters describing how a hive works. In the next room is a video playing about an Australian who keeps bees. We were once beekeepers so we already knew all about bees so we didn't learn anything. The shop is nice and the cafe but these are free to look around. We were only here about 30 minutes. There are lots of signs about the owl experience but this is a completely seperate group that come in, the owls are not resident on site so unless you book that seperate and pay some more money there will be no owls there. Still, at least we had a good laugh about it.

I found this on a flyer outside a service station. I really like bees and honey and thought it would be a really good day out. When we got there, I was told we weren't allowed the dog on the upstairs tour which kind of made it more difficult for us all to go upstairs. It's a little over priced for a very limited experience, I also felt dogs would not cause any problems being upstairs in the tour if they're well behaved. However, don't let that put you off. The staff were friendly in the giftshop, allowed me to try the different honeys before I bought some. The honey was a reasonable price, so was the mead. The very best thing was the owl experience, I was unaware there was one there and when we saw the notice, my friend and I had to experience it. The more there are of you, the less it costs. For us two it cost £6pp. The man was so lovely, knowledgeable and really allowed us to be ourselves, excitable, bubbly interviewers as such (I like to ask questions). The owls were so cute and really well behaved. I loved the angry looking little owl. Little gifts were on sale too. I would suggest perhaps getting hold of those owl whistles that make the hooting sound. As they'd be a great gift! So I rate the honey farm probably a 3 but the full 5 goes to the owl experience. :) if you go, go for this. You won't be disappointed!
