Raw Honey - Multifloral 500g (Organic)

Be the first to review this product

Raw Honey - Multifloral 500g (Organic) is available for purchase in increments of 1
We have always enjoyed raw honey in small amounts. Unlike all the other sweeteners on the site, honey has a relatively high glycemic index, so it is not suitable for people who are on low-sugar diets.

Availability: In stock


Unlike all the other sweeteners on the site, honey has a relatively high glycemic index, so it is not suitable for people who are on low-sugar diets. We enjoy it in small amounts - a teaspoon spread on a flax cracker, or a couple of tablespoons in a batch of chocolate.

This Multifloral honey is:

  • not pasteurised
  • not ultra filtered (which removes the pollen).
  • not a blend of different honeys from different countries (which almost all supermarket honey is, even when it is organic).
  • produced by bees that aren't given antibiotics.
  • produced by bees that are fed honey not sugar in the winter.
  • from an environment with very low pollution levels.

Let me tell you how we started selling raw honey

An obsession with raw honey grew from a life changing discovery after visiting the Spanish Pyrenees during a family holiday in about 1997 or 1998.

It had been a very hot summer, really really hot. We were roasting in the south west of France and saw on the map a lake 'just over the border' in Spain. So we decided to head for it for a refreshing swim. 

I don't think we ever reached the lake because our 'just over the border' was about 80 miles along windy mountain roads. However, we spent the next week camping the Pyrenees, in an incredibly wild area where it really did seem like time had stopped. This was the Spain of old, not the fast developing Spain of the late 90s boom.

On the way back to France we stopped at a little border town, Bielsa, high in the mountains to pick up some gifts. It was here that we discovered Ramon's honey.

There was about four shelves stacked with this honey in big one kilo jars. And there were lots of varieties I had never heard of  - like Oak and Orange.

I don't think we opened any of the jars until we got back to England. When we did, I was flabbergasted by the strength of the flavour and the thick consistency.

This was unlike anything we had ever tried before. There was no comparison with the supermarket honey we had been eating before.

This really was a moment of revelation - the discovery of proper honey.

From then on the trips to the Spanish Pyrenees became an annual event for us. Always we would stop at the shop in Bielsa to buy larger and larger amounts of Ramon's amazing honey..

We couldn't meet the demand from friends and family - this alerted us to the fact that we might be onto something really exceptional.

So one year we decided we would try and go and see Ramon and ask him if he could sell wholesale honey to us.

That proved difficult. He didn't have a web site and he didn't seem to answer the phone. We had bought ferry tickets and were close to our leaving day but still we hadn't been able to get any response from him.

Eventually the night before we were due to get the ferry to France he returned our call. He said he would be pleased if we visited him.

I suppose we were expecting a little old man dressed in a beekeeper's suit, but as we were to find, Ramon looked somewhat different. Quite a hip looking dude, but not in the least bit pretentious and very very earnest about his honey.

Finding Ramon's house was a mission and a half.  He lived a two hour drive from the Pyrenees. But actually finding his house proved very difficult - you have to remember that this was in the days before satnav.  In the end he came out to try and find us as were completely lost. 

So we got to meet Ramon, his wife Begona and their three sons Jonathon, Mario and Alessandro. They were in involved in running the family's honey business and running a small holding. They really were living the self-sufficient life, although it was a way of life for them, not a fad.

Begona had prepared a feast for us and as it was a cold day we sat in front of a roaring fire whilst Ramon told us about his philosphy of beekeeping and we tried different types of honey on freshly buttered baguettes.  

What we heard was pleasing and reassuring. Ramon was very committed to raw honey and to a traditional style of beekeeping. 

He told us that he never pasteurises his honey because that would destroy the health properties and how it is only run through a coarse filter so that pollen remains in the honey (which gives it health benefits)..

He said he wanted to produce 'a honey, like the honey of old'. That he doesn't give his bees antibiotics, or any chemical medicines. 

Ramon doesn't add anything to his honey or take anything away. 

So that evening we loaded up my van with boxes of Ramon's honey and began the journey back to England. That was the beginning of The Raw Honey Shop.

Later, we met an organic beekeeper called Antonio. His hives are based in the mountain ranges to the north of Madrid. His honey is raw and certified organic. Antonio is the fourth generation in his family to keep bees for honey.

There are a few other beekeepers we get honey from now. Luisa and Mario live in Asturias in the north-west of Spain - bear country. They produce a limited range of raw organic honeys that are creamed. Bernard produces raw organic Manuka in South Island, New Zealand.
