The remote forests of oak, linden, chestnut, and acer trees, and the diverse biozones (Alpine and subalpine) of the area host many endemic species of herbs and wildflowers, like the Lilium rhodopeum, Viola thodopeia, different kinds of orchids and many others. The organic oak tree and wild flower honey that is harvested here, is really one of a kind. With a dark, almost black color it is viscous, with an unprecedented taste, rich and full-flavored, but not so intensely sweet. Organic Oak tree raw honey is considered to be the most antioxidant rich honey of Greek origin, with its rich content of vital vitamins (B1, B2, FP, B12 and B6), minerals, folic acid, monosaccharides (glucose, levulinose, fructose) and high-molecular sugars (melicitosis).
