See a key difference difference between raw and processed honey

Photo comparing processed and raw acaciaIt's not a great photo but hopefully you can see the difference between a fine filtered commercial acacia honey (on the left) and our raw acacia. 

It's the bits in raw honey that help to give it its character and flavour - they are a main part of the difference between raw and processed honey. 

These bits are pollen, propolis, beeswax and sometimes bits of royal jelly.

The pollen in particular helps to give raw blossom honey its flavour.

One of the consequences of a particularly raw honey with lots of bits like this is that they help to seed raw honey - that is they hasten the process whereby honey solidifies.

This is nothing to worry about - it is actually one of the signs that the honey is raw.

    Your raw honey really has proved to be superior to commercial honey both in flavour and consistency, we love it.

    I love the bits, in fact I am always bothering local producers for cappings but rarely fine any.

    Everybody in the family agreed that your honey is the best!..

    This is without doubt the best honey I have ever tasted. It is the perfect way to start the day with oat cakes & coffee.

    I bought you mountain honey, I think it is natural and delicious.
    I also want to buy (honey beech) 2 kg but you do not have. Please send a link (honey beech) to Emily if you have at the earliest opportunity

    Ordered a few small jars to start with and ended up coming back for a lot of the others. They taste amazing, I have to say it tastes clean if that’s even possible compared to store bought honeys. Love them and will definitely be back for more
