This is our raw English Heather honey produced by our bees in the North-East of England and North Yorkshire. The bees are relocated up to high moorlands to forage on Ling heather in late July and August to produce this dark, wholesome honey. Winning a two Gold star award from the Great taste awards.
The honey is taken from the hives and hand extracted, we then spin the honey in a centrifuge to remove the larger particles of wax. We don't pasteurise or mix this honey, leaving all the pollens and natural enzymes intact. Knowing exactly where the honey is from allows us to guarantee that this is simple honey from the b to the jar.

As with all honeys it may crystallise over time, this is a natural process that in fact proves the quality of the honey and does not mean in anyway that the honey is off or has spoiled. All that happens is the colour and texture of the honey changes, this can happen quickly or slowly depending upon the individual makeup of the honey. Higher glucose content means quicker higher fructose means it happens slower. This process can start is the the honey gets too cold, with crystals forming which then spread through the honey giving a grainy texture. Its easily rectified by gently warming the honey to melt the crystals. The lower temperature and slower the better as too much heat can spoil the honey.
