We Are Beekeepers
We stand for real honest African honey!
Beekeeping is one of the more universal agricultural activities that have been practised in the world for a long period of time. We carry out our beekeeping activities in Eburru forest - a unique mountain forest ecosystem comprising more than 8,000 hectares of prime indigenous forest area, springs, waterfalls and rich biodiversity.
Local Collaboration and Patnerships.
We have partnered with the local community predominantly the Ogiek, Kenya's last minority honey-gathering forest dwellers, traditionally famous for generations of sustainable bee-keeping and forestry conservation. It is in this unique way of life well adapted to the forest that inspires our beekeeping enterprise.
The Ogiek community bee-keeping traditions transcends time and place in ensuring we deliver high quality honey and share lasting values that goes back generations. As an organisation, we have a greater goal to preserve this rich heritage and tradition. We also hold it upon ourselves in promoting much better standards of honey appreciation.
From the Bees to You
Stamped with nature's mark of quality!
Wild African honey bees in Eburru Forest collect nectar from a vastly diverse variety of indigenous florae to create this rare 100% wild forest honey.
- Eburru Gold Honey is locally and ethically produced.
- Has strong nutritional and medicinal properties.
- Has a traceable origin in a well-protected environment.
- Immensely contributes to sustainable livelihoods in the community and the forest’s biodiversity.
It’s all about the bees and trees for us!
We believe that bees and trees belong together. Bees are a natural component of the ecosystem and play a big role in contributing to biodiversity. We are interested in the protection of our forests by planting native bee loving trees and prevention of forest loss. Our beekeeping community is able to generate income from this harmonious symbiosis while at the same time conserving the forest’s biodiversity, reducing carbon emissions and fighting climate change! This whole project seeks to raise awareness of bees and natural beekeeping.
