Naturally strong in flavour and distinctly aromatic, Heather Honey is one for the honey connoisseur. The translucent red amber colour and bubbly jelly-like consistency sets this honey apart. Highly prized for its unique health benefits Heather Honey has been called the 'British Manuka'.


Ling heather thrives in acidic soil that is not found in large enough areas in Sussex so each year we take some of our hives for a late summer holiday from the chalky South Downs to the Moors of North Yorkshire, where they feast on the expanse of stunning mauve flowers.


Our small batch honey is not blended or heat pasteurised, and is only minimally filtered so it retains the benefits that the bees and nature intended.


We are passionate about our bees. When you buy our honey you can be assured that you are supporting British Beekeeping.

Unpasteurised 'raw' honey is not suitable for babies under 12 months.



  • Yes, however  ‘Raw honey’ is not defined in food legislation (Honey Regulations 2015).      The term ‘raw honey’ was created by consumers to distinguish between “proper” honey and “supermarket honey” with “proper” honey being of known origin, unpasteurised and only minimally filtered and processed.   So yes, by this consumer definition our honey is considered raw.


    Large honey producers pasteurise their honey sometimes as high as 80’c thereby destroying the nutrient antioxidant qualities (enzymes, flavonoids, phenolic compounds, vitamins and aminoacids).    They filter it to remove most of the pollen grains and mix different honeys to create a uniformed taste.    


    We currently have the term ‘raw’ on our labels as this was helpful to our customers a few years ago.   We will be replacing this with ‘unpasteurised’ going forward as there is now a greater public understanding of honey.
