Glassware – McLernon’s

Many of the Association’s beekeepers buy their glassware {glass jars} from:

Sam McLernon LTD
3 Ballyknockan Road
BT24 7HG

Tel. 028 90811010

Coming from Carryduff along the Saintfield road, turn right after about 2 miles. The turn is just before the garden centre, you will see their polytunnel on the right. Turn onto the  Ballyknockan Road and McLernon’s is on the left in 50 yards. The office has now moved to the small bungalow on the left as you look up the site. Access is via the rear of this building, you can see the large door of the distribution area straight ahead. They have a display case on the far right inside the office should you want to view the options or view online at You select and pay for the jars in the office before collecting them from the goods entrance. I have normally parked near the road and then pick them up at the goods entrance/exit at the very top, they are usually happy for you to reverse up to the goods entrance.

Plastic honey buckets.

McLernon’s also do a good range of buckets. These are displayed on a shelf beside the door. The prices are very keen but remember the base price doesn’t include a lid or VAT so may seem very cheap. Get the lids as well. I found the smallest bucket did not last well but the larger ones are very good.
