I gave Sedgemoor Honey Farm a call and they where kind enough to tell me about the honey we tasted. As with most local honey it had been strained to remove debris from the honey after the comb had been spun. No one wants the odd bee leg floating in the product! Straining leaves all the pollen and nutrients in the honey to give it a unique and scrummy flavour.
