Northumberland Wildflower Honey

A firm favourite with honey lovers. Some of the most pure and natural honey you will encounter.

Produced by the bees of Northumberland Honey Co in the Tyne Valley and Hadrians Wall country, through the spring and summer months.

How is Wildflower Honey made?

Wildflower Honey is produced by the bees of Northumberland Honey Co, cared for by Suzie, Luke and Anna. The honey is 100% natural, pure, coarsely filtered to retain the natural pollen, and not heat treated. Bees are managed sustainably and with the overall purpose of increasing their number, and ensuring we only ever take the surplus honey and leave plenty for the bees to feed on over the winter months.

Our bees a free to forage in the Tyne Valley area of Northumberland and Hadrians Wall country, the bees range extends from Haltwhistle, to Hexham.

Local Honey for Hayfever?

The pollen retained within honey is what benefits hayfever sufferers, but should really be taken throughout the off season for hayfever - ideally over winter. So its a good idea to stock up (honey doesn't go off) and have small quantities of honey throughout the year. For a real hayfever busting honey try out the 'added pollen wildflower honey'

In terms of honey being classed as local it is really ideal within 40 miles of where you live, but there is little evidence to show that being further away from the source of honey, so long as it is natural honey makes any difference. We have customers from over 100 miles away that take this honey for hayfever and swear by it!


Pollen Analysis

All our honey is tested for pollen content and this demonstrates the truely polyfloral nature of our honey.
Usually Wildflower honey contains around 30-40 different pollen varieties that the bees gather to make this remarkable polyfloral honey and perfect for building up resistance to local pollen making the honey particularly useful for hayfever sufferers. Please see the second image showing most abundant nectar sources in current stock of Wildflower honey.

Honey Consistency / Texture


Please note this honey is soft set, technically called 'creamed' as it is stirred for 24 hours prior to bottling, this ensures the honey maintains a nice spreadable consistency, perfect for warm toast, hot drinks, baking, cooking or just eating straight out of the jar!

Alot of people often ask for clear or runny honey, but take note, often the clear or runny honey is heated treated to ensure it stays runny, which takes away the bulk of the benefits of the honey being natural and raw. Creamed honey is a perfect way to enjoy this pure honey in a format that suits all uses.

Store at room temperature.

Heather Honey Jar

Produced by the bees of Northumberland Honey Company, direct from our bees to you.

of the Heather Moor. This is the closest honey to Manuka you can get in
the UK with alot of the same properties at a fraction of the cost.

Gathered by the bees in late summer from the Heather moors of Northumberland.

Enjoy with cheeses, on toast, breakfast cereals or just on it's own!
