Bee America's Pioneer Honey is an artisanal blend carefully crafted to recall the robust honey infused with warm molasses and the rich essence of roasted tree nuts that sustained American pioneers.
Enjoy the robust essence of American pioneer honey. Seeking individual freedom and the promise of boundless expansion, American pioneers headed west toward the Ohio River Valley. Their experiences and interactions along the way helped to shape American culture, values and ideologies. Honey, collected in the wild from honey trees and from carefully tended straw hives or skeps enriched the pioneer diet and sweetened their hardships. The full-bodied taste of natural honey became a comfort food of sorts to the pioneers, and it still brings the same sense of connection to our generation. Pioneer Honey commemorates the perseverance and resourcefulness of the men and women who settled America's first frontier during the mid-eighteenth to the early nineteenth centuries.
