Honey is a superfood

Honey is 100% natural.  It is healthier than sugar, nutritious, sustainable, versatile and delicious. 

Honey can even help prevent hay fever, it is naturally antibacterial and is a source of minerals.

Humans have been eating honey for thousands of years.  It’s a natural sweetener.

You should eat honey, too.

Local honey is better for you

Llangattock honey is made by bees who gather nectar from the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. 

They make wildflower honey because wildflowers grow right outside the hives; in the surrounding fields, on the banks of the River Usk, and on the slopes of the Black Mountains which overlook them.

The honey they make contains traces of pollen; if you eat it, it acts like a vaccine, making your body more resistant to hay fever.

Local honey is better for the environment

A thriving local bee population is essential for our environment. 

The bees pollinate plants around us, promoting biodiversity in our countryside, and keeping our hedgerows and fields healthy and fertile.

Only locally produced raw honey has these benefits; buying from a supermarket isn’t the same.  Mass-produced honey can be blended and filtered in ways which break the link with local flowers and lower the nutritional value.

We have 70 hives in Llangattock, Bwlch and on the slopes of Sugarloaf Mountain.

The bees are tended by Anthony Smith, who has been keeping them for six years.  Anthony says, “We like to think that if you taste our honey, you get a taste of the wildflowers and heathers which surround us.  We do very little to it; it is straight out of the hive and into the jar within 24 hours. What could be more local than that?”

If you buy Llangattock Honey, you will get the best flavour, the highest nutritional content, the very best of what is around you. Buy local, buy Llangattock Honey.
