For the well-being and harmony of hearts. A healing honey.

MEXICAN SCAPTOTRIGONA

The historical and cultural link

The Melipona is a large, strong and hairy bee that lives inside holes in trees and stone walls. Produces more honey than all bees. However, Melipona honey production is very complex due to the bee's sensitivity to climate and habitat change.

.

Our honey production comes from the Totonac area of ​​Veracruz, located in the center of the country. More than 20 producer families work together, forming a legal cooperative, following the company's Edible Forest model, associating the cultivation of cinnamon, allspice, vanilla and melipona.

.

The main harvest is between March and April. Then comes a post-harvest stabilization work of the fermentation, giving a honey available for sale in July-August.
