Filberts of Dorset produce and supply Dorset honey and wax products, including beekeeping courses, live bee colonies, orchard pollination and a wide range of natural polishes, beeswax candles, seeds for bees and natural skincare products.
Tucked away between the hills of West Dorset and the sea, you’ll find Filberts, set in the landscape that gives the distinctive honey.
The taste and colour of Dorset pollen and nectar is locked into each pot of Filberts’ raw honey. From varied and distinctive hive sites, each location is harvested separately. Flavours and conditions range between sites and between the seasons. The provenance of each batch is carefully recorded so it is possible to say when the honey was extracted and where the bees were located while they were foraging. Our honey is extracted raw which retains all the delicate flavours and volatile compounds, giving styles of honey that reflect the terroir of this beautiful part of Dorset. This delicate and interesting character is what our customers love!
We are committed to small batch production, with every product handmade in batches from 100 to 1000 units at our premises in the heart of Dorset. We make each from scratch, gently heating and filtering blocks of beeswax as it comes in from the field, following laid down procedures with almost zero waste.
Born from the needs of the outdoors, Filberts of Dorset also makes functional beeswax products with a quirky sense of style for those that love a natural way of living. None of our products contain synthetic colourings, fragrances, preservatives, parabens, phthalates, silicones, palm oil or mineral oils and all are concentrated, nourishing oil based blends that contain no water. Each item is created from high quality, 100% natural antioxidants and we can ensure a minimum 30-month shelf life for our skin care range.
From beeswax lip balms and skin salves to classic polish, there’s a little bit of Dorset in every recipe. Find us in around 150 independent gift shops, museums, heritage sites and farm shops across Britain.
