Boyne Valley Honey is Ireland’s favourite honey brand, and has brought pure, natural honey to Irish families since 1960. Our delicious honey is packed in Mell, Drogheda, Co. Louth. Mell takes its name from the Irish word for honey – mil. Honey is embedded in the history of the Boyne Valley. The Boyne Valley Honey Company is situated close to the site of Old Mellifont Abbey, which takes its name from Fons Mellis – The Fountain of Honey. It was the first Cistercian Monastery in Ireland founded by St. Malachy in 1142, and the monks at Mellifont were renowned beekeepers.
