This superb organic heather honey is packed together with raw honeycomb which, apart from its delicious nature, brings a wealth of concentrated nutrients. Heather honey is gathered from bees feasting on the wild herbs and flowers in the forests of the island of Evia, and is certified as a premium organic product. In Greece, heather (also known as soussoura) is considered a plant whose 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.
A traditional Greek product, Stayia Farm's organic honey belongs to the elite of Greek countryside honeys and meets the approval of the most demanding connoisseurs. As to the honeycomb it's packed with, that has proven effective in treating gastritis and stomach ulcers. It's rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, acts as a natural antibiotic, and boosts the immune system.
Organic Heather Honey with Honeycomb is part of the Stayia Farm range of honeys under the name "Vasilissa", a name that comes complete with a Greek mythology legend: 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 organic heather honey with raw honeycomb appeals instantly and promises lingering moments of sweet pleasure.
