100% Pure Natural Honey from Japan Various Flowers
A honey collected by bees from a lot of various flowers, that it's called various hundred flowers honey. This honey filled with the blessings of nature in the northern part of Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Nectar is collected in a remote mountain where forests spread and clear streams flow, in an environment where there is very little concern about pesticides.
Recently, it's common to mix antibiotics in the bee's bait to prevent honeybee diseases, but there is a risk that drug-resistant bacteria will appear and the antibiotics will not work, and the honeybees will be gone. Considering the danger to the human body due to the residual antibiotics in honey, we are particular about beekeeping without using antibiotics, and honeybees are produced in a way that is close to the power and ecology of living naturally.
Weaving Connections With Nature Through Honey Bees
From flowers to honeybees, from honeybees to people. We are weaving connections with nature through honeybees.
After two years of experience in mobile beekeeping, Mr. Shiomi, the beekeper said, "In this rich nature, you can feel the unique taste of the seasons in the land of Haruno, Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. I want to deliver really delicious honey to you all." With that in mind, he started the current beekeeping.
We value the attitude of understanding the honey bee's habits well, creating a comfortable environment, and receiving honey as a thank-you gift. We also carefully hand-picking natural honey that does not use antibiotics or drugs.
