Our apiaries

Part of the Bee farmers association (link), we at The British Honey company only supply 100% pure, unadulterated British Honey. Gathered by bees from a wonderful mix of blossoms from all over Britain. With one warranted exception, our Manuka blend. Manuka has been sourced directly from New Zealand and blended with British honey to give you the an beautifully rich honey with the natural health benefits of Manuka honey.

Honey is a natural sugar and healthy option over sugar and sweetness. We believe every jar should be as fresh tasting as possible, which is why we let the bees do all the work themselves.

Our collection of honey includes, Cotswold, Oxford, Blueberry Blossom, Apple Blossom, Cut Comb, Borage, Heather… 

No dilution. No pasteurisation. No additives.

Our testing

We at The British Honey Company are leading the way of scientific research into the provenance and traceability of Honey. We have been working with Oxford and Reading Universities and have initiated a programme looking at the DNA makeup and the Isotope readings of various honeys. We have written our own software programme to track the provenance of honey from ‘hive to table’ we are also able to test for any impurities and guarantee the safety of our honey in the food and drinks chain.

Alex Maurice, Director of IT & Tracability, “We are pleased to be involved and supporting Ayla Paul who has started a PhD studentship at Reading University sponsored by The British Honey Company and the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) investigating the provenance and traceability of our British honey and that our honey has not been tampered with and contains no foreign, fake or contaminated honey.”

Fake honey

Honey is the third-most adulterated product in the world. According to testing by the EU, 20% of samples taken at EU’s external borders and at importers’ premises didn’t respect high EU standards. This could be for example because products have sugar syrup added or honey has been harvested too early and then artificially dried.
