    Harvested from sub regions of the Atlantic Forest, our Angico Honey comes from the south region of Brazil, more specifically the center of Paraná State. This region is characterized by a temperate climate with no dry season, warm summers and frequent frosts in winter. Atlantic moist forests, prairies and transitional vegetation cover the countless hills and grow along the many rivers that run through this region. Abrupt elevation variation creates many waterfalls. This rough terrain is not very suitable for agriculture and therefore one can still find many protected areas. Angico trees can grow up to 70 feet.

    Our Aroeira honey comes from the Cerrado. A biome which accounts for a full 21 percent of Brazil's land area. The Cerrado's climate is typical of the rather moister savanna regions of the world, with a semi-humid tropical climate. The Cerrado is limited to two dominant seasons throughout the year, wet and dry. Since then vast amounts of research have proved that the Cerrado is one of the richest of all tropical savanna regions and has high levels of endemism. Characterized by enormous ranges of plant and animal biodiversity, World Wide Fund for Nature named it the biologically richest savanna in the world, with about 10,000 plant species and 10 endemic bird species.

    This Honey comes from the interior northeastern Brazil, a region mainly covered by the Caatinga, a very dry place in Brazil, with frequent droughts that can last up to 7 months. After the first summer rains in the caatinga, the Marmeleiro plants are the first to bloom. Their small, white flower are very fragrant, and their nectar is responsible for the production of a honey with a very appreciated taste. Due to its great capacity for regrowth and its rapid growth, the quince tree is a potential species for restoration of degraded areas.

On the lowest altitudes, one can find palm trees and even mangroves.
