Our Traditional Mad Honey Can Now Be Yours

No one understands what Mad Honey means to the people of Nepal better than those that have been harvesting it, and enjoying its benefits, for thousands of years. That’s why we started Honey Nepal. We’re a small collective of Nepali honey hunters and beekeepers working to keep these time-honored traditions alive and bring this ancient blessing into the modern world.

The bees that create our prized “Mad Honey” have kept their vigil for millennia, hundreds of feet up sheer cliff walls, dutifully converting the nectar of the local rhododendron species into medicinal honey unlike any other. These bees are central figures in our culture, traditions, and beliefs. We’re dedicated to honoring their efforts with sustainable production methods that benefit those involved in these most difficult harvests.

Why is sustainability so important?

Because honey harvesting is our livelihood. It’s weaved deeply through our cultural heritage and forms the cornerstone of our traditional medicine. The bees do their part, and so must we, protecting them from poachers while guarding against overharvesting. Mad Honey is some of the purest, more potent mad honey available. Harvesting it requires death-defying ladder skills. It’s critical that only traditional harvesting methods are used to ensure the hives, and our people, aren’t harmed.

Fair practices are essential to the creation of an ethical market

Our suppliers are always paid equitably for their harvests. We employ a Napali staff working in Nepal for the betterment of the Nepali people. Every decision we make factors the good of the bees and our people first and all other considerations second.
This practice is good for us, certainly, but it’s also good for you because it will grant you access to the finest mad honey far into the future.
