Harvested from strawberry trees in the mountains that surround the ancient city of Arta, this honey comes from a special place on Earth.
Commonly referred to as the ‘spine of Greece’, the mountains where it’s made are a land protected from the environmental damage so much of our world has been plagued with.
Four rivers have roots in these mountains, with slopes and canyons rolling through it’s beautiful terrain.
The strawberry trees that grow in these mountains grow 2,000 feet above sea level. The view here is breathtaking.
You won’t find a lot of people or settlements. The mountain range is home to a few monasteries, villages made up primarily of stones, some farms and natural apiaries, like ours.
The Pindos mountain range is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet, due to its unique geology and Mediterranean climate. Thanks to its isolation, the vegetation is free from toxins and pollutants that are currently commonplace almost everywhere else in the world.
The mountains are one of the few places in northern Greece where small shrubs known as “Strawberry Trees” grow in the wild. These trees grow large bell shaped white flowers from their branches. They are rare and their beauty is world renowned.
High up in the mountains, these trees thrive in a truly natural, GMO-free, unpolluted environment.
These trees can’t be easily accessed.
This fertile territory can’t be used for farming or visited easily in many areas.
Strawberry trees are the source of one of the healthiest honeys you’ll ever taste — if you’re lucky enough to try some.
Large white flowers blossom from the strawberry tree’s branches only a few months at the end of every year. The honey is only available for harvest from November - December. It’s a honey with powerful health benefits and a higher antioxidant content then nearly any other honey in Greece.
Far from civilization, beekeepers let each other use their lands to collect this organic honey in the colder months.
The flowers on this tree bloom at the end of the year, in the winter, making it harder for the bees to collect much nectar from the flowers. Of the honey they do create, most of it has to be left behind because the bees use it as their main supply throughout the winter, so only an extremely small amount can be taken from their hives safely.
The harsh winter conditions for the bees combined with the small number of strawberry trees that grow wild in the Pindos mountains make this one of the hardest honeys to produce.
Bees adore the nectar of flowers that grow on strawberry trees. Even in the winter they fight through the cold temperatures to swarm the trees and drink the sweet nectar. The bees crave the powerful amino acids, nutrients and antioxidants that the nectar contains. That all ends up in the honey they produce.
Strawberry tree honey is rich in vitamins, trace minerals and it is especially rich in antioxidants.
Research shows that strawberry tree honey has impressively high antioxidant activity.1
And that’s only the beginning…
This honey possesses some surprising and impressive health benefits.
Strawberry tree honey is known in the health community as one of the most antioxidant rich honey types in the world. It contains HGA - homogentisic acid, an extremely healthy compound with strong antioxidant activity and the ability to fight free radicals. One study found that just 14 days of eating strawberry tree honey increased number antioxidants and white blood cells in the body. It’s high antioxidant levels suggest it could be used to maintain healthy cells, a strong heart and to keep joint pain at bay.
One study released in 2017 showed strawberry tree honey can help block abnormal, dangerous cell growth in men’s colons. The study suggested that this honey may be an effective way to reduce the risk of life-threatening colon problems.
Strawberry tree honey isn’t like the empty honey you can find on any store shelf. It’s loaded with healthy microbes, amino acids, proteins and antioxidants. One study, showed strawberry tree honey even had more proteins, amino acids and antioxidants than manuka honey (a popular medicinal honey).
While many people enjoy honey of all kinds, raw forest honey like this is actually one of the best superfoods you can eat for respiratory health. It can control inflammation that affects your airways, while also thinning mucus and clearing out the pathways to your lungs if you are feeling congested.
Eat this honey to help keep your cholesterol levels healthy.
The high homogentisic acid (HGA) content of strawberry tree honey has been shown to help keep cholesterol levels stable within the body!
Raw Greek honey is acidic, which promotes the release of oxygen from your blood. Applying it to cuts and burns gets them to heal faster because the honey creates a more favorable environment for tissue repair. Applying it as a daily mask can tighten pores and make your skin appear more youthful.
Even enjoying Greek honey on your toast or in your tea can have a beautifying effect on your skin. It’s known as a powerful natural remedy for blemishes.
This honey is a natural and delicious way to boost your immune system.
Raw honey contains healthy microbes that actually stimulate your immune system. Science has proven the presence of these probiotics in honey and demonstrated their power to the point where many experts view raw honey as a medicinal food.
This is all wonderful, yet there’s still a major problem…
This honey is in such high demand that you won’t find it in a store and it’s not easy to get your hands on even if you went to Greece yourself.
That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news though…
You Don’t Have to Travel to Arta and Hike the Pindos Mountains
in Order to Get a Jar of Your Own
Thanks to the latest release by Activation Products: Panabee Strawberry Tree Honey
Now you can order a jar of this amazing super-honey from your computer, cell phone or tablet and have it delivered to your doorstep.
We’ve done the hard work for you, and gone through the hoops that other honey suppliers are unwilling to.
Activation Products struck a deal with an apiary in the Pindos mountains to supply this one-of-a-kind honey to our customers. There is truly no other honey like it anywhere.
This is not your ordinary supermarket honey. Today you can order one of the purest medicinal honeys in the world, found in a region you’d probably never be able to visit yourself.
Picture a gorgeous green hillside, framed in by mountains, where all you can see is lush green and natural beauty. That is where the apiary our honey comes from can be found.
That means it hasn’t been heated, filtered, creamed or irradiated. It’s only been strained and all of the healthy bacteria are still in it.
It’s also organic, which means it’s completely free of pesticides, GMOs and antibiotics.
The apiary we sourced this honey from was selected based on its organic quality — meaning its distance from civilization.
As I’m sure you’ve already guessed though, the supply of this honey isn’t unlimited.
We were only able to secure 541 jars to be flown in from Greece, meaning that supply is especially limited. Once we sell out, we won’t be getting this specific type of honey again for at least another year. The type of honey that comes from these sacred mountain forests change with the seasons, which means that even if we wanted to secure more bottles we couldn’t until next winter because it’s already all gone.
Due to the difficulty of making this unique honey available in North America, the price tag could be over $100 per jar, and it would still sell like crazy.
Fortunately for you, we chose not to do that. You can get it today for a much lower price.
Panabee Strawberry Tree Honey is not sold in stores or anywhere other than this website.
The last three times we’ve sold honey from the mountains of northern Greece, we have sold out in just a few days. This time, stock is already dangerously low to begin with, so we could run out at any moment.
Now’s your chance…

This is raw honey from the secluded mountains in Northern Greece. It has more probiotics and nutrients than pasteurized honey and has the most to offer to your health.
Most honey is not raw. Most honey is pasteurized — the properties of honey that make it so good for you, are stripped away. Retailers don’t want a product on their shelves that looks less than perfect so they insist on pasteurized honey. The pasteurization process involves filtering the honey repeatedly, which removes any trace of the honeycomb that it came from, stripping away much of the valuable nutrients.
The honey is heated and reheated to destroy its ability to crystallize or harden; by the time the process is complete, what remains is basically just sugar.
When it comes down to it, the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antifungal properties of honey are key to the health benefits that honey has to offer and the antioxidant content helps to support your immune system and protect your body from the effects of oxidative stress. These properties are very sensitive to heat and are often entirely destroyed by the pasteurization process. To make the most of honey’s benefits, it has to be raw, and ideally organic.
The beekeepers that we work with ensure just that. They do not use any unnecessary technologies in the making of their honey and heating is not even considered.
The honey we offer is harvested by hand, using a traditional tool called an inox fork, which is used to carefully pry away the wax seal and expose the honey. This obviously takes a lot more time — a machine could do it in 1/100th of the time it takes to do it by hand — but the extra effort ensures that the honey remains as close to untouched as possible.
Excessive filtering processes are not used with this honey, as they remove the pollen that is naturally present, which are excellent for you and can enhance the flavor of the honey. A simple straining is all that is needed, and then the honey is given time to sit. After a while, the natural wax that remains in the honey rises to the top and can be scooped away.
Modern technology is only used in this honey making process where absolutely necessary and only on the condition that it does not alter the final product. This means that you are getting the honey exactly as the bees created it, along with all of its natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics and other essential nutrients that it has to offer.
Our beekeepers aren’t just looking out for the end product, they are also looking out for their bees. On their own lands, they make sure to plant trees and flowers that are grown organically and will nourish the bees.
When they harvest the honey, they make sure to leave enough for the hive to live on, instead of replacing it with a low quality sugar syrup like many apiaries do. The bees are still able to enjoy their own food source, because the beekeepers are careful to calculate exactly how much it is safe to take. Over the winter, an average hive needs to feed 20,000 bees plus the queen. Throughout the rest of the year, the numbers per hive are closer to 60,000. Knowing this, and keeping tabs on the life in their hives, beekeepers can harvest appropriately.
When it is necessary to move the hives in order to collect honey in different forests, the beekeepers exercise caution and are careful to ensure the safety of the bees. No chemicals are ever used on or around the bees, only natural products or solutions where appropriate.
Maintaining a low-interference apiary is not easy. Without the use of technology, everything takes more time and more effort. The yields may be lower and profit-margins smaller, but unsurpassed quality of the honey makes up for these downsides in spades.
