What our Customers Say
I am in love with this honey. It is absolutely delicious and I have never tasted anything like it, a delicate golden amber colour with a runny consistency, ever so sweet but not sickeningly sweet with a beautiful scent and encased in a glass jar. Compared to other varieties this is a very 'mild' honey. I believe every household should have a pot of honey, the benefits are endless. Using it to ward off colds and sickness, delicious to eat, and I have even used it on a spot or two. Cannot recommend enough!
