Beekeepers

We select only beekeepers that respect bees and the botanical environment around them.

The beekeepers that we love are the one that learn directly from bees. They recognise that human intrusions do more harm than good. 

 

How much propolis should be collected from each hive?

Bees don’t make propolis for humans. They make propolis for protecting their hives.

The beekeepers that we love think in this way: “I should collect only an amount of propolis that the colony doesn’t need”.

Which non-toxic methods should be used for controlling insects?

Pesticides not only harm health through contaminated food, but they also damage bee’s colony and affect the quality of bee-related products.

The beekeepers that we love don’t like short-cuts. They are the one that put an extra effort to preserve bees as well as controlling insects from damaging plants.

What was the last lesson the beekeeper learnt from bees?

Bee colony observation is a key part of the learning process.
The beekeepers that we love make regular verification of the health status of the colonies during the year, control on the productivity and resistance to illness, do frequent renewal of honeycombs and regular replacement of queens, and so on.

 

These are some of the aspects that we verify before selecting a beekeeper.
