True Wild Honey collected by experienced Tribesmen.
We collect wild honey from tribesmen belonging to a tribe who have been extracting honey for decades from the forests of Bandipur Tiger Reserve And National Park and The Nagarhole National Park And Tiger Reserve.
Honey and beeswax have been extracted from wild beehives for more than hundreds of years. We collect Wild honey from hives build by Wild honeybees in hollow trees, old logs or rock caves. Traditionally, honey collectors climb trees or lower themselves down to reach out to the bee hives. Firstly, smoke is used to drive away the bees from the wild hive and access the honeycombs, making 30,000 to 50,000 bees homeless. Thus collectors protect themselves by wearing long gloves and clothing to reduce bee stings. Honey would then be gathered out from the honey combs by squeezing with help of hand. Obtained honey is later filtered to remove other participles and preserved in airtight clay jars.
Raw Honey Characteristics
Raw and unfiltered honey has high antioxidant level and will crystallize to a think form after few months. The fine textured crystals looks like cloudier and contains bee pollen, honey comb bits and even bee wings fragments. Raw honey is the most original sweet liquid honeybees produce from concentrated nectar of flowers, gathered from tribesmen unheated, unpasteurized and unprocessed.
