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. 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.


Aroeira is a tree well known due to its pharmacological properties, being considered one of the main medicinal plants of the region. During the flowering period its canopy is completely leafless, covered only by flowers. Its inflorescences form small, fragrant curls with yellow flowers, which produce nectar in abundance that attract many species of native bees. The organic honey produced through the aroeira nectar is tasty and much appreciated by all. In addition to the nectar, the male flowers have showy anthers that provide pollen to the bees. The resin, derived from bark lesions, is also collected by bees. In the dry season, a period with few floral resources in the caatinga, plants like the aroeira are fundamental for the feeding of the bees. This has a significant socio-economic impact, since beekeepers can harvest their product even in times of severe drought. Due to its melliferous characteristics it is indicated the planting of seedlings in areas of conservation and breeding of bees.
