Getting raw honey to you during the Covid-19 Corona-virus pandemic
We are working hard to get honey to you during the Covid-19 outbreak. However, there are difficulties in getting supplies from the beekeepers and in getting it delivered to you.
Not only are we short staffed but also the delivery services are under serious pressure.
Please be patient about queries and note that we do not have the usual flexibility in terms of product exchanges, and have had to temporarily suspend our 90 days returns policy.
Despite all this our small team is managing to get orders out within a few days. We do not though, know how long this will go on - before we have to suspend our service. Therefore we advise you to order sooner rather than later. We will post regular updates at the foot of each page.
Tim, Claire and Ilinca - The Raw Honey Shop TeamA bit about the raw honey journey.......
In about 1997 we stumbled across the most amazing wilderness honey high in the Pyrenees, just inside the Spanish border That was a life changing discovery - honey that was raw and unprocessed, unlike anything we had ever tasted before.
Bringing it back for friends and family ended up with us selling the honey. If you are looking for pure raw honey that meets the following criteria then you have come to the right place:
Honey that is from wild places, away from the pesticides and toxins you get from conventional agriculture, industry, motorways and other sources of pollution.
Honey from traditional, small-scale beekeepers who don't use practices common to 'factory farmed' honey production - like not leaving the bees with any honey and giving them antibiotics.
- Honey that is minimally processed - just coarse filtered to remove debris and not pasteurised, which would harm the beneficial properties and flavour.
- Honey that is higher in the naturally beneficial qualities because it is raw and untreated.
Honey to buy in bulk with volume discounts.
- Honey that is certified organic or produced according to organic principles. You can see our organic certificate here..
- Exciting monofloral honeys like Oak, Chestnut, Rosemary, Thyme, Lemon Blossom and more.
It's important to note that because this is raw honey it does crystallise after a while, unlike the pasteurised highly filtered honey found in supermarkets, which stays runny for a very long time.
This is natural and should be expected with really raw honey.
