Raw Dorset Honey
Raw Dorset Honey from our hives and extracted in small batches to preserve the unique flavours and textures of each of our apiary sites.
If you’re not familiar with the term “Raw Honey”, this is unpasteurized, coarsely filtered honey spun off at room temperature. The unprocessed nature of the honey not only preserves the differences in taste and consistency, but also its beneficial wholesome qualities. Our raw honey may contain some pollen, propolis and small particles of wax.
Pick from a specific site…
Chilcombe: From a beautiful rural site overlooking the Bride Valley and the Chesil Beach. Far reaching views to Portland and to the Devon coast. Bees enjoy foraging in a large garden and the surrounding fields and hedgerows.
Pond Mead: From the hedgerows, fields and gardens of a small hamlet in the Asker river valley, just east of Bridport
South Eggardon: The apiary sits beside a country house with large bee-friendly garden. It sits in the bowl of chalk downland beside the Iron Age hill fort of Eggardon, with views over Lyme Bay and inland across West Dorset.
Woodpecker Alley: From a spinney above a cider farm in Melplash. A favourite pastime of Green Woodpeckers is trying to break into the hives to eat the bees and their brood. The site produces lovely honey, so it’s worth keeping a close eye on the hives to make sure we’re keeping the woodpeckers out.
