Raw Herb & Wildflower Honey - 5kg
Please note: The image of this product shows a single jar size but the 5kg size is presented in a 5kg tub not a jar. This product is now past its best before date and this is reflected in the price. Please be aware that as honey never 'expires' any honey passing the best before date is still perfectly safe to eat - the best before date is simply the date that the beekeeper expects the honey to crystallise - a natural process of all raw honey.
