At Nature’s Blends, we obtain our Raw Chestnut Honey from sunny gardens nestled in the lap of Mount Pelion in northern Greece. The scenic Pelion ranges were named after Peleus, the father of Achilles and are said to be home to the Centaurs.

Chestnut honey is rich forest honey packed with pollen content, minerals, and tannin. Because of its unique content, this raw herbal honey heals, nurtures, and strengthens the body from within - and tastes amazing while at it!

The complex, distinctive, and mouthwateringly delicious taste makes raw chestnut honey the perfect choice for healthy salads, meat dishes, roasted vegetables and a wide variety of cheeses and desserts.

Raw chestnut honey has two species, one light-colored from the flower and one dark amber color from the seed. The darker the honey is, the richer its taste.

Chestnut honey has a distinctive rich aromatic taste and a pleasantly bitter or "smoky” aftertaste. Perfect for anyone who likes their honey strong and viscous but less sweet.

Chestnut honey by Nature’s Blends is sourced from Sweet Chestnut trees (Castanea Sativa) that grow on the soft slopes of Mount Pelion (aka Pelium) in Thessaly, northern Greece.  The stunning mountain ranges form a hook-like peninsula between the Aegean Sea and Pegasitic Gulf. Our raw honey is harvested from chestnut orchards dotting the lap of these fertile ranges.

The sweet chestnut tree or Castanea Sativa is a common sight in the northern hemisphere - but it was first brought over to Europe from Sardis (present-day Turkey) via Greece thousands of years ago

Chestnut trees belong to the same botanical family as beeches and oaks. They are resilient, nectar-producing trees with strongly scented flowers that attract a lot of honeybees. The tree blossoms during summer months (May-June) which is when most of the pollination occurs.

Raw chestnut honey by Nature’s Blends is a rich monoflower one seed honey, meaning the bees gather nectar only from sweet chestnut blooms. This gives our honey its unique flavour and nutrient profile.
