From Mount Mainalon, in Arcadia, Greece
at a height of ~1,000m
Premium Organic Honey from the Greek Fir Trees (Abies Cephalonica ) is harvested by our bees at an altitude of <1000m on Mount Mainalon in Arcadia prefecture, Greece. Abies Cephalonica is native to Mount Mainalon, which makes the species and its growth unique in Greece - and worldwide - due to low temperatures throughout the year. This honey is produced by bees that collect honeydew from insect species which live on native Greek Fir trees. This makes the honey unique in comparison to other flower blossom honeys, in that it is resistant to crystallization - while its climatic origins also give it its unparalleled malty flavor!
