We are lucky enough to have Exmoor National Park in Somerset.  
The bees spend about 4 weeks at the end of the summer foraging on the Ling heather which flowers there in August and September, much later than the Bell heather.  The strongest colonies are strapped up and transported to the high moorland for this brief holiday.  Sometimes it rains, or the heather beetle gets there first and we come back empty handed but the honey is so amazing, rich and strong that it's worth the effort. Known as the Queen of honeys it's not like any other taste. It's strong, thixotropic (jelly like) and doesn't easily crystallise. 



Exmoor Bees' Raw Ling 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.
