Before the origin of kingdoms and dynasties, people lived along with nature. At those times hill honey was one of their major food sources. It is an ancient natural sweetener that is rich in anti-oxidants.

Over the course of their existence, they learned many essential life traits. One of them is extracting honey from the slopes and trees of their land. It requires extreme skills and abilities only the tribes could manage. The yaadhum honey is extracted by such experts in the hills of salem!
