Uganda is blessed with numerous types of wild honeybee. They exist everywhere on the African continent where humans live, from the equatorial, evergreen rainforest to the desert oasis, although they are more numerous in the drier savannah than in the wetter forest areas.
They all produce honey, the nutritious and natural food good for both man and animals. To many Africans, honey serves as food, medicine, and most of all an income source for farmers.
As many farmers have expressed it, “Honey is Money!”
Bee farming is self-sustaining and does not require the importation of foreign equipment.
