There is nothing finer than local, raw honey. Whether you eat it on toast, in porridge, with yoghurt or straight from the jar; Wilderness Lane honey has a unique flavour that is influenced by the rich and beautiful woodland, orchards, meadows and hedgerows in which their bee hives are located.

The raw, unheated and unfiltered honey is thick but not set and has wonderful hints of blackberry and caramel.

Sussex Raw Honey | Local Food Sussex

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the High Weald, this small family-run business is passionate about keeping bees in a sustainable and ethical way as well as raising awareness of the many benefits of local raw honey. 

At Wilderness Lane, only honey that is surplus to the bees throughout the year is harvested, meaning the bees are never fed sugar.

Local Food Sussex says

Wilderness Lane is keen to promote the many health benefits of its local raw honey versus that of commercially produced honey. Raw honey boasts antioxidants, important enzymes and vitamins as well as a fantastic natural aroma and flavour that can be lost during the heating and pasteurising process.

"We are advocates for all the wonderful, local, raw, English honey. Our customers tell us they will never buy supermarket honey again." Will Ball - Wilderness Lane Honey.
