Mexico's Beekeepers Go in for Organic Honey


For centuries, residents of the Mexican peninsula Yucatan have produced honey using natural methods. With the global demand for organic honey now exploding, that tradition is serving the region's beekeepers well.

Yucatan's isolated location and minimal infrastructure might normally be seen as a huge disadvantage. But in this case the opposite is true: the unspoiled countryside is one of the beekeepers' biggest selling points. The price of their organic honey is already nearly 50 percent higher than that of conventional honey.
