What is Raw Honey?

What is Raw Honey?

Raw food products are in their original form as created in nature. Nothing is added or harmed in the components of the product. Raw honey is best described as honey “as it exists in the beehive”.

Honey can only be called “raw” if it has not been processed, super filtered or heated.
But remember, beekeepers do need to strain out huge pieces of wax. Letting the honey drip through a sieve under no pressure.

Each honey harvest is unique. Because each season different flowers may or may not produce the same amount of nectar as previous years. At the Mount Richon Honey apiary, it is not uncommon to have one harvest of honey that is very light in colour and another very dark.  Flavour and colour will vary.

Always store raw honey in an airtight container. It is important that the lid is secured properly and tightly to preserve the quality of the honey. Store your away from direct sunlight, in a cool environment that, ideally is around 25°C. Inside a kitchen cabinet or pantry is ideal.

Avoid storing the honey near appliances that produce heat, like your stove, oven or refrigerator.
