Isn't it time you forgot about run-of-the-mill honeys and reached for a Greek, 100% pure, organic heather honey? Stayia Farm's honey contains royal jelly and fresh pollen so that every spoonful is packed with health benefits. It's gathered from bees feasting on the wild herbs and flowers of the mountains of Evia and is certified as a premium organic product.
In Greece, heather (also known as soussoura) is considered a plant whose flower nectar is excellent food for bees. Some of the most fragrant heather plants can be found in the pine forests in the mountains of Evia. Heather flowers from fall to spring and yields honey of impressive quality and distinctive characteristics. Stayia Farm's forest honey also contains royal jelly which needs little introduction. It is secreted by the bees, a sort of superfood for the bee elite and, since ancient times, it has been treated as an elixir that champions long life and restores vitality. Rich in vitamins and minerals, royal jelly is also a source of protein and greatly assists the nervous system and the human body overall to function seamlessly. Stayia Farm further reinforced the health benefits of royal jelly in its honey by adding fresh pollen, a food on its own since antiquity. Stayia Farm has succeeded in binding together the truly dynamic trio of organic honey, royal jelly, and fresh pollen to ensure that your daily nutrient requirement is met.
As to the honey's name, "Vasilissa", it originates in one of the most spellbinding myths of Greek mythology: Cronus was the king of the Titans. The seers had foretold him that he was destined to be overthrown by his own sons. So, as soon as sons were born to him he would devour them to prevent the prophecy from coming true. However, Zeus, his sixth son, did survive thanks to Melissa (the Greek word for 'bee'), a mountain nymph who hid him from his father and fed him honey. Cronus was furious when he found out and changed her into an earthworm. Later on, Zeus, who could not but be grateful for her ministrations when he was an infant, broke Cronus' spell and transformed her into a queen (Vasilissa) bee. Dark bronze in color, Stayia Farm heather honey appeals instantly and promises lingering moments of sweet pleasure.
