British Autumn Honey is made by bees taken up onto the moors in August when the Ling Heather is in bloom. The bees produce an incredibly aromatic honey with a uniquely thick and silky texture.

Honey’s antimicrobial quality is measured by the term “Total Activity (TA)”. The higher the TA score the greater the antimicrobial strength. Most unpasteurised and coarse filtered ("raw") honey types possess some activity level, usually on a scale from 1 to 20. Honeys with Total Activity over 10+ are considered to have substantial antimicrobial properties.
The jars come packed in a sturdy kraft tube.
Award winning British Honey. Unblended and unpasteurised. Every jar is stamped with the beekeeper and apiary.
Black Bee Honey based in Frome, Somerset was founded by Paul and Chris 15 years ago. Their interest in beekeeping led them to rooftops and gardens, where they cared for over a million bees. They discovered how amazingly different honey tasted straight from the hive and wanted to share this with everyone.
Black Bee Honey Ethos:
'We’re a nation of honey lovers and we have a long history of beekeeping. The crazy thing is most of the jars of honey on the shelves of our supermarkets are imported and blended from mysterious locations far, far away.
Honey bee colonies are now rarely found in the wild so our honey bee population relies on beekeepers. As well as producing our own honey we work with select honey producers in the UK to offer the best of British, supporting both our bees and beekeepers.'
