All the goodness of the wilderness
Forest Honey flow is often strong in late wet summers. It may be known generically as “Tree Honey” but also by the name of the particular source plant, “Fir Honey”, “Pine Honey”, “Lime Tree Honey”, “Oak Honey” etc.
Many people believe this honey is created from sap secreted directly from the tree itself. This is not the case. Only occasionally do plants exude a honeydew-like substance directly that bees will use, and this is usually as the result of an injury or shock to the plant. (check out our own Honeydew Honey)
Forest honey is highly appreciated in certain parts of the world by connoisseurs and honey lovers alike for its intense flavour and health benefits. It is especially well known in European countries like Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Greece, and Turkey.
