Our Honey

African Bronze Honey is different from the honey you find in grocery stores. It’s raw, unpasteurized forest honey that comes from wilderness areas and national parks. This is what honey used to be before agriculture! And it’s why the Ancient Greeks called forest honey, “food for the gods”. 

Our forest honey’s unique floral taste comes from honeydew, a sugary liquid (like nectar) that derives from sap. Tree dwelling insects like aphids produce a nutrient rich concentrated honeydew nectar that bees ‘steal’ whenever they find it. It’s what makes forest honey so remarkably different from processed honey!

And that’s why we don’t sell our honey in little bears. We just sell real honey, the way it was produced for millennia. Wild, raw and completely natural.
