In 1938, Tony Rowse started beekeeping in a small shed in Ewelme, Oxfordshire. He loved it so much, he decided to turn his little hobby into a business. So he formed the Rowse Honey Company in 1954.
Before long, as people fell in love with honey's natural goodness, Tony was sourcing honey from beekeepers all over the UK.
During the 1960s, after some very wet springs and summers, the company started importing honeys from Mexico and Australia. By 1987, Rowse had grown so big, we moved to a larger location in Wallingford (not too far from Ewelme), and Tony handed over the reins to his son Richard.
