What our Customers Say:
My mum bought 3 and gave me heather. It is amazing! I actually feel I eat less in the day now because it keeps me fuller after having a dessert spoon in my porridge every morning. I'm now addicted so ordered 3 more. Great service too, thank you
I will recommend the Raw Honey Shop to family and friends as I'm pleased with your service. Tried your Raw Heather Honey, it's taste and quality far exceeded my expectations. No going back to the pasteurised honey for me. Thanks
