Since the beginning of time people have been harvesting pure honey from around the globe. Primitive tribesmen risk their lives to bring this Nectar of the Gods to their villagers. When I was a kid about 10 years old some of the local townsfolk invited me along to get a large beehive in a deadened tree. They used smoke rags on long sticks, then one brave man went up the tree… reaching in the hole and began throwing hunks of honey comb down to the ground. The woods was a buzz of wild bees flying everywhere and a few people got stung.We kids scrambled to get a hunk of the honeycomb and ate it right their in the woods. I thought this was the best thing since sliced bread and it always had a lasting impression on me.

QUOTE: “Place a beehive on my grave And let the honey soak through.When I’m dead and gone,That’s what I want from you.The streets of heaven are gold and sunny, But I’ll stick with my plot and a pot of honey. Place a beehive on my grave And let the honey soak through.” -Sue Monk Kidd
