Atacora Fair Trade Raw Filtered African Amber Honey 11.5 oz

Atacora

Honey has been known for centuries for its possible health benefits as well as for its flavor. It has been known to help heal wounds as well as help fight coughs and inflammation.

This dark amber honey has a unique and nearly intoxicating aroma and flavor. The bees collect pollen from primarily Shea Nut, Acacia, and Baobab tree flowers to produce this unique honey.

Rich in flavor and delectable in flavor, Atacora Raw African Honey can be added to:

  • Teas
  • Sauces
  • Baked Goods
  • Dressings

This unique honey is produced by a cooperative of beekeepers from the wooded Savannah of northern Benin. The site sits on 55 hectares of wild forest, and the beekeepers installed 192 hives. Wild bees colonize the hives and harvest pollen from Nèrè, Shea, Mango, Gmelina, Moringa, Cashew, Acacia, Ficus and many other trees and flowers to produce the most flavorful honey ever tasted. The production is fully organic, but not (yet) certified. The money the beekeepers receive from their honey brings badly needed income to this great group and their families.
