Bee Earth-Friendly: All About Honey

Did you know that Wholesome Honey was the first Fair Trade and Organic Honey in the United States? At Wholesome, we’re especially proud that unlike most locally or U.S.-produced honey, every ounce of our Wholesome Honey products remain free from harmful chemicals like pesticides, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and other pollutants. Along the way from hive to home, we carefully protect every drop of our honey, ensuring that what you bring home is a purely wholesome choice. Read on to find out more about the bees and beekeepers that make our product so great.

Organic Raw Unfiltered Honey

In the cold winter months, there’s no better way than to relax with a nice cup of soothing tea made with Wholesome Organic Raw Unfiltered Honey. Our honeybees in make this delightful multi-floral nectar in organic hives within protect forests far from industrial agriculture.  The remote locations are critical to providing the cleanest honey that we now certify as Non-Glyphosate in addition to our USDA Organic and Non GMO Project certifications. Few honeys can achieve this distinctive purity level.

Wholesome Organic Raw Unfiltered Honey is strained of its natural hive debris and never heated above natural hive temperatures so it retains its beneficial enzymes, pollen and propolis.

Organic Honey is Earth-Friendly

How do we ensure that our Wholesome Organic Honey is pure and pesticide-free? The beekeepers tend to their hives deep in the dedicated organic zones in the jungle including Fair Trade coffee plantations. The honeybees forage only on the wild jungle’s natural wildflowers, which the beekeepers help protect – along with the hives – in order to encourage biodiversity and help the forests thrive.

Wholesome Fair Trade Organic Honey is free from chemical residue, as the plants surrounding the hives have not been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides and the hives have not been treated with antibiotics. This helps protect the health of the bees and beekeepers. With the increasing threat of declining bee populations due to the heavy use of chemical pesticides, our beekeepers have committed to raising their bees and harvesting their honey in the most organic and sustainable ways possible.
