Honey as it should bee…. Straight from the hive, Wholesome! Fair Trade Organic Honey is deliciously decadent, with a delightful butterscotch essence. Honeybees make this delightful multi-floral nectar in protected organic hives in Southern Mexico and Brazil. It is perfect for drizzling on warm biscuits, hard cheeses, or Greek yogurt. It easily blends into healthy salad dressings, protein shakes or fruit smoothies. We love it in soothing hot tea and morning coffee too. Try some of our delicious Organic Honey recipes.
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, far from any exposure to GMO’s or pollutants. Beekeepers protect their hives as well as native plant forage areas 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 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. This means you get the best tasting and purest honey! In fact, we have some of the best honey in the world as voted on at the 2013 World Beekeeping Awards by International Congress of Apiculture.
The Fair Trade Certified logo is Wholesome!’s guarantee that our beekeepers tending the hives are paid directly for their honey. This means they can develop the quality of the hives and forage areas and build thriving communities. By protecting the hives and forage areas, Fair Trade Certified encourages biodiversity and helps the forests thrive, too. Thank you for choosing Wholesome!
