As part of the special edible network project led by the Redbridge Nature Conservation Team, the 18th century walled garden at Ray Park in Woodford Green is home to a number of busy bees that collect nectar and pollen from the ample tree blossoms and wild flowers. The result is a gorgeous, distinctive variety of raw honey, harvested by hand, filtered and jarred simply as it is, with nothing added or removed.

Not only is the sweet stuff great for the taste buds, it is also good for you! Honey naturally contains nutrients and enzymes that have a variety of health benefits and medical uses, but much of the honey found in shops has been processed and this unfortunately destroys much of the beneficial antioxidants and bacteria.

Raw honey, the type available to purchase from Valentines Mansion, offers many health benefits for the immune system, the heart and to seasonal allergies such as hayfever. Find out more on the health benefits of raw honey here.
