Here at Reuthe’s-The Lost Gardens within our 11-acre paradise, our beehives are nestled in our orchard so that the bees can feast on the flowers of quince, chestnut and apple. 

We harvest the honey in Autumn and after filtering we pour the raw amber nectar into jars available to buy direct from our retail shop and online via www.reuthes.com

Many people believe that as raw honey comes straight from the honeycomb it provides more health benefits than regular honey. Whereas regular shop bought honey is pasteurised using intense heat and this reduces the number of antioxidants and nutrients contained in the honey. 

Raw honey is naturally cloudier than regular honey because it contains small pieces of the honeycomb. Some studies have shown that raw honey is more nutritious than regular, offering extra health benefits. It is also suggested that by eating raw locally produced honey we can mitigate the effects of hayfever on our immune system.

The benefits of bee pollen reported that incredibly, honey combines antioxidant properties with anti-inflammatory effects, antibacterial and antifungal action together with pain-relieving properties. These properties make bee pollen a useful addition to honey and can contribute to honey’s natural ability to heal wounds and kill bacteria. Bee pollen also contains amino acids, vitamins A and C, and small amounts of nutrients including calcium, magnesium, and sodium.
