Additional Information

Dark Miombo honey is derived from trees that are of the Brachystegia genera (21 species of tree), and produce rich nectar flows for honeybees. This nectar results in a dark and distinct honey, resembling molasses in appearance.

Miombo is vernacular for woodlands growing in southern and central Africa. The tree species that provide nectar are the Brachystegia (miombo trees), Julbernardia, and/or Isoberlia —¬†all three are part of the legume family. These woodlands are home to innumerable species of flora and fauna, and provide access to a number of human products and services which range from food and medicine to cultural and spiritual needs.
