We are lucky enough to have Exmoor National Park in Somerset.
The bees spend about 4 weeks in early summer foraging on the bell heather which flowers from June, much earlier than the ling heather.
The two heathers produce quite different honeys. Both tend to be thixotropic (jelly like) and don't easily crystallise.
It's very difficult to harvest and bottle but we beekeepers know it's worth the effort.
248gm Somerset Bees' Raw Exmoor Heather Honey
Our honey is only strained through a filter to remove any debris. This ensures that all the pollen, propolis and other goodies are all left behind for you to enjoy.
We don't pasteurise the honey as this kills the good bacteria and enzymes. It also means the honey will granulate over time. If you heat it gently the honey will become runny again.
Honey is not suitable for infants under 18 months.
