Our beekeeping activity was founded in 2000 but the passion for bees started in 1850 when great-grandfather Pietro began keeping this wonderful insect. Future generations continued the beekeeping activity until the early 1990s when Rino, no longer able to look after his beehives, gave them to us and with our children, we decided to continue, expand and renew the activity.Rino, a friend of the great beekeeping expert Abramo Andreatta, author of many articles on bees, knew the techniques of producing honey in mountain areas very well and with the bees passed on his passion and his secrets to us.
The cultivation of officinal and aromatic plants: Our passion for officinal plants goes hand in hand with our love of the world of bees. We carefully grow, among other plants, mint, lemon balm, calendula, mallow, cornflower, monarda, evening primrose and numerous aromatic plants.Rigorously handpicked at the correct time of year to give us a high concentration of active ingredients, they are used to prepare infusions, aromatic salts, extracts for our cosmetics, liquors and grappe!
Bedollo, in the higher part of the Pinè valley in Trentino, at about 1000 metres above sea level, is a natural and uncontaminated environment with many woods and pastures. Our family-run business is located in this territory. Following traditions and using careful techniques, we produce honey and other beehive objects, artistic candles made from pure beeswax, herb infusions, natural cosmetics, liquors and grappe!
We have a modern laboratory used for the production of honey and its by-products and for the officinal plants. Great care is taken of our bees, of their wellbeing and their feeding which is exclusively with natural products.
