What our Customers Say:
So called 'healthy options' still have all kinds of additives. It is fantastic to see that there are farmers/producers out there that are still following their ancestors trades without making any changes. I am in love with the Wild Lavender Honey
I like the lavender flavour, as it is new to me. I have always used raw honey in childhood which my father used to get it from the native people of hilly area. Your raw honey had been a big hit in my home here in london. Lavender flavour is one of my favourite, both as a scent and taste. I would love to purchase this flavour in future too.
This honey was my first foray into the world of 'proper honey', that is unpasteurised untreated natural raw honey. I absolutely was not expecting it to taste so beautiful, at this time I only had shop bought honey as a basis of comparison. The honey was a clear fairly pale colour, a sweetness that is so natural, nothing artificial about it.... I imagined being with the beekeepers opening the hive and just tasting it! The subtle lavender aftertaste was a delight, not overpowering at all. This had me hooked on raw honey from the start, and I came back to find more honeys to explore! I can only equate the revelation of tasting real raw honey for the first time, with tasting fine wine for the first time.... In a vinyard... Not a supermarket! Exquisite.

The honey is as described, quite mild tasting and quite crystallised. I bought it mainly to use in my bread making and I've used it in ice cream making and cakes. It's perfect for that and is also lovely on a slice of fresh bread. I like the thought of it being more or less straight out of the hive, though I'm not sure those bees had much of the lavender... I can't taste any. Shipping and packaging was good.
Your product is lovely, just send me the normal(liquid) one, not crystallised one, please
This is my favourite
A very nice honey, hav'nt found one yet that I don't like!
Raw Wild Lavender Honey
I love all your honeys because they are Raw and the bees are fed their own honey in the winter. I tried the Eucalyptus one first which is lovely. I found the Lavender Honey to be very sweet, which is a shame because I can't eat as much of it as I would like! I'm going to try the Oak Honey next as I am told on good authority (my niece who lives in Spain and she eats these honeys all the time) that the Oak one is gorgeous. At the moment Eucalyptus wins over the Lavender honey in my household!
