June's box features honeys farmed through partnerships between Forested Foods and smallholder farmers in Ethiopia. In order to create a world where forest ecosystems are more lucrative conserved than destroyed, the company has been working to deliver high-quality products while keeping forest conservation, agriculture production, and equity for forest-based communities in harmony.
These honeys come from wild bees living in intact vibrant, highly bio-diverse forests. The hives are suspended in tree canopies, and the honey has to be collected in the dark of night, when the bees are sleepy. All of this aliveness is present in the honey, which is fermenting. The honey's flavor will continue to change over time, and the honey may even try to escape from the jar.
