The bee hives for this remarkable honey are placed high up along the north-facing, fynbos-covered Akkedisberg Mountain range between 500m and 650m above sea level in the spectacularly beautiful Overberg Highlands.
Our neighbour and World-Renowned Erica specialist, Oom Thys de Villiers, cares for the endemic bees. Some hives are so remote it takes half a morning's walk to reach them. Obviously, there is only a limited amount we can produce - about 300 jars a year.
Taking into account the predominant kloof-funnelled winds, mountain streams and ancient Haseqwa settlements, Oom Thys has a specific philosophy of placing the hives to ensure amazing tasting, healthy, honey. You will taste the vitality and the difference.
We are in the process of certifying our honey as organic. Enjoy and be healthy!
