Our fruits of the forest honey is deeply coloured and favoured honey, rich with the fragrances of Italian woods. This is a honey to savour in yoghurt, over ricotta cheese or on buttered toast.


Our producer – La Ginestra

Our honey comes from a Cooperative in Tuscany called La Ginestra, founded in 1978 by a group of young people who wanted to preserve and renew the traditions of the Tuscan countryside. Established on a farm that had been abandoned for decades, it took the name form the beautiful yellow bushes of wild broom that at that time filled the uncultivated fields.

Since 1989 the farm has been organic, using eco-compatible methods of production in accordance with EC regulations. Beekeeping is one of the farms main spheres of activity, producing 6 varieties of single flower honey from the uncontaminated pastures and woodlands of Tuscany: Acacia, Chestnut, Wildflower, Forest flower, eucalyptus and heather.

La Ginestra’s honey is produced with the organic agriculture methods that prevent the use of any synthetic products or chemicals to treat and care for the bees, plastic has also been abolished with the bees only coming into contact with wood, metal and wax. The beehives are kept in wooded areas far away from urban and intensively farmed areas where polluting factors would damage the honey.

After the extraction of the honeycombs they filter and separate to eliminate impurities and air that can sometimes remain after this process. The honey is then packed in a liquid state (after a little heating under 40 degrees if it is too dense or cold).

At the same time that i bought the Acacia Honey i also bought this one, with the intention of yet again giving it as a Xmas present, it never made it to the "giving" pile! Delicious set honey, love that these are true Italian produced organically made, you can smell and feel the quality. This is also a honey that i believe has protected me from Winter viruses with its antibacterial properties. I have Multiple Sclerosis and am more prone to catch infections, as i do not like to have the flu injections and prefer to do things holistically, this product is part of my First Aid box! I truly recommend you to try it.
