Forest Honey - All the goodness of the wilderness.
This beautiful wild honey contains nectar from different plant varieties blooming at the same time. Forest Honey is considered a perfect honey. It has a complex composition consisting of a variety of nutrients and vitamins such as B and C. It is a great source of your 5 a day.
Forest Honey flow is often strong in late wet summers. It may be known generically as "Tree Honey" but also by the name of the particular source plant, "Fir Honey", "Pine Honey", "Lime Tree Honey", "Oak Honey" etc. So that even today many people believe this honey is created from sap secreted directly from the tree itself. This is not the case. Only about 1% of the time do plants exude a honeydew-like substance directly that bees will use, and this is usually as the result of an injury or shock to the plant.
Forest honey is highly appreciated in certain parts of the world by connoisseurs and honey lovers alike for its intense flavor and healthful properties. It is especially well known in European countries like Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Greece, and Turkey
