Why order this pure honey?
Because there is too much tampering with honey. Paul, our beekeeper, makes his honey in an honest artisanal way. And is guaranteed not to engage in the following practices:
- Some honey producers take too much honey away from the bees and then feed them sugar dough. This weakens the bees, increases bee mortality and reduces honey quality.
- honey is topped up with sugar water, making people think they are buying a liquid honey.
- Each honey has its specific properties. But cheap honey is made up of different types of honey. So it is not pure, natural honey straight from the beekeeper's hive, as it is with our honey.

Origin of rosemary honey
Rosemary is a shrub that grows wild, around the Mediterranean, on sunny, dry and rocky terrain. The blue flowers always attract bees that convert their nectar into a highly prized honey. Rosemary honey, is a mono-floral honey that has been produced since Roman times.
Rosemary blooms from January-February to April-May. Flowering is long, regular and peaks with the arrival of spring.
The harvest of rosemary honey is very early in the year and does not last long, between late April and early May. The quantity of rosemary honey harvest depends on the flowering of rosemary.
This honey is harvested in Occitanie, southern France, near Narbonne, in the valleys surrounding the municipality of Fontjoncouse.
