Created by our bees from a mix of flowers, and ethically sourced from our apiaries across Sussex. Winner at the Great Taste Awards.

 

Our small batch honey is not blended, making each jar unique to the individual apiary (or even hive) from which it comes.  For this reason honey lovers can look forward to subtle differences in taste and colour from one jar to another, and a truly local taste experience.

 

The raw honey is not heat pasteurised and 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 and the Sussex countryside.

  • 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.
