Honest Honey is produced by our bees from the flowers of the gardens and fields in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire, UK. For 2021, we are harvesting honey from beehives located in Amersham, Chenies, Jordans and Latimer.
Why ‘Honest’ Honey? We strive to produce the most natural, wholesome product possible. Nothing is added and nothing changed. The honey is simply extracted from the wax comb, filtered, settled and poured into jars.
Honey contains traces of pollen and consuming local honey is believed to help with seasonal allergies, such as hay fever. Honey also has active anti-bacterial properties. For this reason we don’t use fine filters which make the honey appear clearer but remove some of the goodness. The health benefits of honey were known to Ancient Greek and Roman civilisations.
We think it tastes great too!
As well as producing honey we also sell bees and provide crop pollination services.
