What our Customers Say
Excellent service, prompt delivery and good quality honey, exactly as described. We tried the orange blossom and sunflower, both are delicious. We will certainly be ordering more. Garry, Stoke on Trent
Please know that raw honey does crystalize and is a natural process that occurs due to high levels of natural glucose separating from naturally occurring liquids. For more information on why honey sets CLICK HERE - http://www.honey.com/images/uploads/general/crystallization.pdf

As always I am extremely happy with my recent order. In the past I have tried honeys but The Raw Honey supersedes all others. I use honey in tea, coffee, porridge and anywhere else I can. It is also a very good healer which I can confirm 100%, my dog because she became an angel had a wound that wouldn’t heal, after covering with raw honey it soon healed over. Thank you I will be buying again when I run out
A lovely fresh tasting honey we love it and so does my daughter
I personally don't think this honey is very flavourful and not one of my favourites. It's too subtle for me and you need to take quite a bit in order to get the full taste.
