Organic Sunflower Honey boasts a sweetness that reminds us of dried pineapple and apricot jam, a dense consistency and a rich egg yolk-yellow color evocative of the flower from which it originates. Its spreadable consistency is ideal for slathering across toast, but it’s not too thick that it won’t melt easily into a hot cup of tea.
About the producer
Giorgio Poeta discovered his passion for beekeeping as a teen. The son of two farmers, he earned multiple degrees in agriculture before starting to produce honey in the Italian region of the Marche in 2004. First and foremost, Poeta sees himself not as a honey producer, but as a steward of the land focused on the health and well-being of the bees and their surrounding habitat. Poeta practices what’s referred to as nomadic beekeeping, an approach where hives are constantly moving to various flower-rich environments far from pesticides and intensive farming. This unique method provides the bees with an ever-changing selection of flowers and consequently, a diverse variety of honeys with distinct terroir-driven flavors.
