South Molton Business Association

quince_honey_farmWe are delighted that our meeting in June will be hosted by Paddy Wallace at Quince Honey Farm on Thursday 8th June 2017 starting at 6pm.

Now one of the leading honey farms in Britain, Quince Honey Farm is a family run business, first established in 1949 by Paddy’s father, George. Paddy will share with us, the history of the farm, how it has developed over the years and plans for the future as one of North Devon’s key tourist attractions. Paddy will be discussing the highs and lows of running the business and the challenges that have been overcome along the way.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and then a guided tour of the farm.

If you are interested in attending the event please advise Suzanne Brown by emailing:
