Our honey is of wildflower quality. It is produced by Italian ligustic bees. Our hives are located on our farm which borders on hectares of Mediterranean scrub , which gives our wildflower a characteristic aroma dominated by fruity nuances, reminiscent of brambles and Mediterranean scrub. We treat our bees to defend them from varroa with oxalic acid (allowed in the production of organic honey).
We collect our honey using exclusively manual techniques , leaving it in the hive for all the time necessary so that the bees with their incessant work bring it to the right level of ripeness.
Once collected, we extract it from the honeycombs by centrifugation and we do not operate no heat treatment , for this reason it keeps all its properties unaltered and will show over time the natural crystallization process.

How to recognize a quality honey?
2. Verify that the label shows the basic information:
- product name;
- net weight (grams or kg);
- name or business name of the manufacturer;
- registered office (place where the company is located) the lot number;
- country of origin of the product;
- preferable maximum term of consumption.
Crystallization is a natural process and is a sign of the excellent quality of honey. There are only three types of honey in which crystallization does not occur, namely: acacia, chestnut and honeydew.
