Agrimontana’s acacia honey is naturally pure, fed by the fragrant blossoms of the black locust tree. Widespread throughout North America and Europe, Robinia pseudoacacia (also known as black locust) produces stunning clusters of white flowers in late spring, which attract free-roaming bees with their honeyed scent. Once the bees have done their work, the honey is spun to extract it from the comb and bottled all at temperatures below 45°, a traditional method that preserves the honey’s natural antioxidants and enzymes. This process makes the honey a unique nutritional powerhouse, with potent anti-inflammatory properties. Luckily for us, it’s as delicious as it is good for you! Pale and delicately flavored with notes of vanilla, this honey is a sweet complement to beverages, desserts, and breakfasts.
In the northwest of Italy, Piedmont shares a border with France and Switzerland. It’s a region that is reknowned for its agricultural bounty, home to decadent specialties including white truffles, barolo, and arborio rice. Azienda Agrimontana’s history in Piedmont began 50 years ago, when Cesare Bardini began selling jams, candied fruit, and chestnuts in 1972. Bardini had one mission: to share the natural riches of his home across Italy.
To this day, Agrimontana is dedicated to creating deliciously clean products using traditional methods, without added colors, preservatives, or flavorings. They focus on sustainable agriculture that preserves the beauty of their home while encouraging biodiversity.
