The Atlantic Forest is a very diverse and complex biome. In the highest altitudes, one can find the typical Araucaria Pine Trees. On the lowest altitudes, one can find palm trees and even mangroves. Our Wildflower honey comes from areas around the Iguaçu River, including the world-famous Iguaçu Waterfalls, the largest waterfalls system in the world. This area characterized by a humid sub-tropical climate, with two distinctive seasons; one very humid and hot in the summer and another, humid and warm, in the winter. The region is home to many rare and endangered species of flora and fauna.
