Honey 2017-08-02T07:25:38+00:00


In Eremo delle Fate we also have these wonderful gifts of nature: the bees.
These fantastic beings produce honey and keep it for their community as a food reserve for the long winter months, when the flowers are not blooming and the nectar available to them is scarce. The European bees, “Apis Mellifera”, produce such an abundance of honey, much more than the hive can consume, to the full benefit of us human beings that we can collect the excess.
The wood surrounding our Farm is full of “Corbezzoli” (Arbutus unedo) and Chestnuts, which are undoubtedly the best food for bees.
