Our borage honey is proudly produced for us by Chris Manton from Elm Tree Bees in Worcestershire, England.
Its the only the honey on our website that isnt produced in Wales and this is because fields in Wales tend to be dedicated to farming livestock as opposed to arable crops, such as borage. However, after tasting this honey, we couldnt resist stocking it as its quality shines through and the taste is like nothing else we currently offer!
Chris is based in Worcestershire and manages over 1200 colonies of bees. He is a greatly experienced beekeeper and takes over 200 colonies every year to fields of borage to produce this exceptionally light and fragrant honey.
The honey is cold extracted, filtered and unpasteurised to allow the final product to retain all of the vital micronutrients that are present when the honey is extracted from the hive.
It is extracted in small batches and the colour of this honey will vary in tune with the changing seasons and flowers our bees feed on but predominantly will be a pale, light colour.
Bees are taken to hundreds of acres of borage to forage on beautiful, blue forage flowers.

Borage Honey - 227g
All pure honey will eventually crystallize due to the natural sugars in it. Raw honey has the tendency to granulate faster than highly processed honey as the sugar molecules have more to attach to because of the pollens, propolis and other inherent ingredients still present.
Honey does not have a shelf life. In fact, it has been found in the pyramids and though crystallized, it was still edible; not bad for a food substance over 2500 years old.
If it does granulate, loosen the lid and place the jar in a sauce pan of tepid water until it liquefies. Do not over heat it! The water should be kept below 50c.
