We believe that every family should have easy access to all-natural honey straight from the hive.
Meet Bulgarian Raw Honey – your daily dose of the finest quality pure natural raw honey!
Everybody knows that Belgium is the land of chocolate, Switzerland is the land of Alpine milk, and France is the land of cheese. But did you know that Bulgaria is the land of honey? That’s where the finest quality artisan creamy buttery liquid gold comes from.
In the land of honey, our bees have never even smelled antibiotics or hormones. They freely forage on local wildflowers, herbs, and blossoms grown in unique virgin natural spots.
Europe’s honey land Bulgaria is home to the best all-natural pure raw honey for a reason. Did you know that Bulgaria is the largest herb producer and exporter in Europe?[Source: Eurostat] This is the reason Bulgarian raw honey is so rich in flavor and taste! What’s more, the diverse herbs our bees forage on, contribute to its unique health benefits you won’t find in any other honey worldwide.
The result? A naturally rich in flavor wildflower honey free from pesticides, chemicals, pollution, and other industrial pollutants. From the meadows where the flowers grow naturally through the hardworking bees and the local artisan beekeepers to your kitchen table. Only 100% pure honey to sweeten your day. And your life.
Unique geographic region ...
Bulgarian Raw Honey is a local artisan house. We help people who care about their family’s health get their jar of 100% pure, raw and natural local honey. It comes directly from the beehive to your kitchen countertop. It’s as simple as that.
We believe that every family should have easy access to all-natural honey straight from the hive. All our products are locally sourced and locally produced. Your jar of divine sweetness comes from small family run bee farms where bees are treated with respect.
The old-style beekeepers we collaborate with are passing their craft from generation to generation. They rely only on traditional and natural treatments – their bees are ever treated with antibiotics, hormones or non-natural chemicals.
When you buy from Bulgarian Raw Honey, your jar of organic raw honey can be traced back to the exact area it comes from and the particular family-owned apiary that produced it. With every jar of 100% pure honey coming straight from the bees, you give your family a totally unprocessed whole food – just as Mother Nature intended.
With every jar you purchase from Bulgarian Raw Honey, you contribute to the sustainable development of the small-scale beekeeper in charge of its production.
With every purchase you make, you improve another family’s living and working conditions. We strive to enable sustainable development and community empowerment. Our mission is to give you the best quality raw honey while, at the same time, protect the environment, and promote safe and healthy working and living conditions for local beekeepers.
When you buy your unfiltered raw honey from us, you are not just buying a jar of honey. You are supporting a more humane and more ethical approach that benefits everyone involved – beekeepers, workers, bees, your family, and the environment.
When buying raw honey that is produced in an ethical manner, you help the small Bulgarian beekeepers reach new markets while keeping your family healthy with the help of Bulgarian Raw Honey! This is the easiest way to say No to artificial supermarket honey, industrialized honey production, faceless corporations, and unethical honey-making practices.
Small local beekeepers devoted to producing the highest quality raw honey in Europe often find it impossible to offer their premium quality honey at today’s global marketplace.
This is where Bulgarian Raw Honey steps in. We make sure that with every jar of honey you buy from us, you are directly empowering the beekeeper who made your honey. Our goal is to involve more and more artisan Bulgarian beekeepers in the production of Bulgarian Raw Honey, helping them reach new markets with their premium bee products.
“I wanted to present the Bulgarian raw honey with its amazing nutritious and health benefits to the world. I have traveled a lot and I have been to many countries. I have to admit, there is no honey that can compare in taste and flavor with the Bulgarian raw honey.
I deeply care about sustainable development and the environment. I know what the fertile Bulgarian land has to offer the bees and I see the devotion with which our artisan beekeepers make their honey.”
Now we need your help to bring Bulgarian Raw Honey to the market! We’re aiming to raise £5,000 which will go towards funding our very first production run. The more money you pledge, the bigger the support to the small scale beekeepers will be! If we hit this goal our next step would be to start working with a fulfillment centre in central Europe which will help us greatly reduce shipping costs and delivery times.

What is raw honey?
Raw honey is not processed, heated or filtered. Raw honey is unique as its floral source this is why the color from varietal to varietal, crop to crop.
Bulgarian Raw Honey vs. the Supermarket Honey – so what’s the difference?
Supermarket honey is a blend of honey from many different countries and floral origins. There’s no way for you to know exactly where it came from. What we do know is that it is processed, heated, filtered, and treated so that it has that familiar color and translucence that we have mistakenly come to know as “honey.” It is not. Real honey is raw honey. It comes in many colors, textures, and opacities. Each honey is as unique as its floral source.
