Pure Raw Buckwheat Honey from certified organic buckwheat fields of Northern Ontario, Canada. Buckwheat honey has a strong aroma of malt and molasses. It is rich in polyphenol antioxidants which gives its dark colour.
Clinical studies have shown buckwheat honey to be an effective remedy for cough and sore throat. Buckwheat honey has the highest levels of antioxidants of any honey. Its antimicrobial activities are found to be higher than manuka honey.
Our buckwheat honey is a dark monofloral honey made by bees from the nectar of buckwheat flower. Buckwheat is culinarily used in place of wheat, but buckwheat isn't a type of grass, and is not related to wheat. It is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. Therefore, buckwheat is also free of gluten.
Buckwheat flowers have dark nectar, even though its petals are white, which produces its rich dark color of the honey. This dark color is also the sign of its high level of antioxidants present in the honey. We pride ourselves in the purity of our buckwheat honey by placing the beehives in the middle of large buckwheat fields, and thus producing much darker honey than you would typically see on the market.
One study from University of Illinois found buckwheat honey with tea increased antioxidants levels in the body. And a meta-study on honey showed that it has the highest levels of antioxidants among all types of honey.
Honey is well known to help protect your skin and to hydrate your skin. Which is why we've formulated our own face mask with our buckwheat honey!

We love this honey! Initially we purchased the 500g size because the reviews stated something like you’ll either love it or hate it. I have to admit we didn’t love it at first but definitely didn’t hate it either, and by the time we had finished only a quarter of the jar we were converts. This is a delicious, strong tasting honey. The flavour reminds me of the way a farm smells if that makes any sense. We love it in tea, on toast, in yogurt and on ice cream. And, before the original 500g jar was finished we ordered the 3 kg size. It’s unlike any other kind honey we’ve tasted before and we just love it.
I'm glad you're enjoying our buckwheat honey. Thank you for your review!
1. The care put in the parcel for delivery, each time, was very satisfying and reassuring, which is hard to come by nowadays. The promptness of processing time after ordering, impressive! I ordered after midday on a Monday and by Wednesday before noon, I had this in my hand! Thank you. 2. I'm someone who had never ever owned any kind of sweetener whatsoever at home. From that, to invest in not-so-run-of-the-mill honey was after I read in a book that, to nurture and support good fungi for thriving gut microbiota environment, honey is important to be included in a consistent diet. (Ref. "Total Gut Balance: Fix Your Mycobiome Fast for Complete Digestive Wellness by Mahmoud Ghannoum.) As I suspect my gut is not in optimal state, I embraced it and am very glad that I chose this company over other well-publicised brand from other province. The first order of 500g jar was gone within a week! The smell was peculiar and transported me to some countryside each time I opened the jar but grew on me fast. 3. Now I got this big pot and have been taking on fasting days. When my body's very low on blood sugar and feels tense, this honey in 35C water helps replenish just a bit but slowly, I've noticed. Twice a day, or once more at most, helps keep fasting. Planning to document for a longer term. 4. One thing: the thin plastic bucket this honey is packaged in makes me feel a bit iffy. As soon as I got it, I transferred it in glass jars I had at home. While I appreciate all aspects of challenges the merchants face with the plastic issue, considering honey's acidity, I can almost feel the plastic leeches into this top-quality honey. Something I'd like to see addressed or improved in the future. All in all, I am one of the latest big fans of this honey! And will support this company as well. All the literature shared on the website is also greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you for your through review. We really appreciate it. The container is food grade HDPE and it actually handles acid well. Most acids are stored in plastic because it doesn't react to it. But I do understand your concern. We have considered glass for this size, but it's simply too dangerous to ship.
