THE HONEYDEW HONEY
Unique in its own right!
ARCADIA PINE Premium Organic Honey is an unusual honey because it is not produced entirely by honey bees. It is harvested by bees that collect honeydew from insect species that live on native Arcadian Pines. Honeydew is the sugar-like substance on these trees, which sparkles in the sunlight, hence the name "honeydew"! Bees love honeydew. They transform it into a worldwide unique and delicious honey that is naturally low in glucose and fructose. This makes Arcadia Pine honey resistant to crystallization (versus flower blossom kinds of honey) - while giving it unparalleled earthy flavor!
FROM NATIVE GREEK PINE TREES
At the lowest plateau of Mainalon Forest, in Arcadia, Greece
Our Premium Organic Honey from Arcadian Pines (Pinus Pinea) is harvested by our bees at the lowest plateau of Mount Mainalon in Arcadia prefecture, in Greece, at an altitude <1000m. Pinus Pinea is native to mount Mainalon, which makes the species unique worldwide. This area is strictly demarcated and far away from any human-cultivated land. It is one of the most unspoiled lands in Greece and worldwide. This is where our bees fly free, collecting honeydew from Arcadian Pines.
From the beehive to the jar
This precious honey has been sustainably extracted by using centrifugal force method and absolutely without any heating process; that’s why it sustains all its BENEFICIAL NUTRIENT ELEMENTS and its distinctive earthy flavor taste.
In small batches
We prepare each bee product by hand in small batches on our farm in Arcadia, Greece, ensuring the highest quality therapeutic health enhancements for your body, mind, and skin. To safeguard our bees, we only harvest up to 60% of our beehives’ production, leaving at least 40% of their honey on the honeycombs, while implementing a course of well-balanced methods to ensure sustainability for our Earth, our pollinators, ourselves, and the many generations to come.
& SILKY SMOOTH
Naturally low in Glucose and Fructose
A full-bodied and silky smooth honeydew honey, with a rich, thick texture, this honey has an incredibly distinct and intense pine forest aroma. It has a characteristic malty and earthy flavor with tangy notes. Arcadia Pine Honey is naturally low in Glucose and Fructose, as it is honeydew honey. It pairs perfectly with cheeses, and is an ideal drizzle for salads, desserts, and Greek yogurts!
