Our deep forest honey has a distinct flavour, different to the lighter UK and European honeys. This flavour comes from the many species of nectar-producing trees in the African forests. Trees that have no contact with the pollution of mankind that are deeply embedded in the forest miles away from any civilisation.
This honey is certainly the most naturally produced honey available on the market, the complete organic honey.
A natural beehive which is placed high in the trees of the Zambian forest, free from any pollution.
After a year or so the bees have produced the honey and it is ready for harvesting.
Not only is this honey unique and delicious, our trade with the beekeepers gives them the only possibility they have to maintain their families with producing this incredible honey.
Otherwise they would be forced to the city areas to find alternative employment. Our honey is fair trade with a system set up by ourselves, which the beekeepers prefer to the normal fair trade system. This in turn protects the forest who have a community looking after them and ensuring their protection due to the benefits it has.
Gibson Palata has put all his children through school thanks to the family’s beekeeping income. The children have all the books and uniform they need, as well as a bicycle each.
The forests have a huge population of bees who have an abundant supply of tropical flowers to feed from in the deep forests of Zambia. These flowers are free from the normal pollution of modern civilisation, no pesticides or anti biotics are used; making this honey the king of organic honeys!
The forest of Zambia stretches thousands of square miles and is full of different and widely exotic trees, which flower amazing bloom full of nectar. The forest is full of wild bees who have an abundance of flowers to feed from. Their honey is cultivated using an ancient technique.
Beehives are produced using all materials available in the forest. The bark of a tree is fixed together with pegs and have doors that are made up of bark and woven grass.
These beehives are advantageous for not only are they nearly free to produce, but they also produce the same amount of honey as a modern beehive.
The honey is harvested using a method similar to the European beekeepers of over 100 years ago, who would harvest every year or two. This technique stopped bee diseases building up, something we are only just learning in the West today.
