Established in 1945, Heather Hills Farm is a traditional family-run honey farm based in the Highlands of Perthshire - the heartland of Scotland.
Their honey is collected and extracted using traditional methods to ensure that the enzymes, protein and natural goodness of their honey stays within it and are not destroyed during the harvesting, separating or bottling processes. This produces artisan, raw honeys of a far superior quality and distinctive flavor which retain their natural benefits. In wine terms, their award-winning Scottish Heather Honey is the Champagne of Honeys due to the geographical location of the hives, the terrain and the climate.
Their award-winning Scottish preserves are extra fruit jams made with local Perthshire fruit and cane sugar. Produced in small batches by hand, they contain no artificial flavors or preservatives.
Starting off with just one hive in 1945, they now have 1300 hives across Perthshire and Deeside - the most beautiful and unpolluted parts of the UK. This relatively small scale ensures their hives are regularly and well spaced out in small batches by zones. This means that the bees have plenty of opportunity to roam - up to a 5 mile radius of each hive - giving a superior quality product. A bigger producer would normally cram around 100 hives into the same space – this reducing the quality of the product.
