Honey - Welsh Raw Wild Flower Honey
Raw, Wild Flower Honey from our small holding in West Wales.
We are located in rural Wales where the farming is sheep and dairy with no arable crops close by. This means there are no sprayed crops for our bees to forage on. Their forage sources are fruit tree blossom and wild flowers. Apple, blackberry, blackthorn, borage, clover, damson, hawthorn, Himalyan balsam, lime, marjoram, meadowsweet, phacelia, raspberry and rosebay willow herb make up the majority of our bees forage.
The early summer wild flower honey this year has a delicate flavour from the multifloral content, the majority of which for 2021 has come from the wild blackberries which surround the apiary. The honey is lightly filtered which leaves pollen grains in the honey. It hasn't been heated or treated in any way and is just as it comes off the comb - real raw honey. Over time it may set, this is a natural process and can be reversed by gently warming.In spring, if the conditions are right, we are able to take a crop of honey which comes largely from fruit tree blossom - apple, blackthorn, hawthorn in the wild hedgerows with almond, apricot, cherry, pear and quince from our orchard. We work to organic standards and do not use any chemicals on our fruit trees. To distinguish this honey from the main crop we call it May Blossom Honey. If our bees are producing well and have honey to spare we will have a limited amount available from May. This is currently available - please check the other products.
For the second year our soft set honey was awarded first prize at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show and was very highly commended in the 2019 National Honey Show
