The best test for the quality of our queen bees is the production of honey. Leveraging the image climatic and environmental characteristic of our area, we lead more than a thousand hives with a bee-nomadic breeding that bring us to reach, during the production season, three regions: Piedmont, Lombardy, Liguria.

  • The first pollen of willow, hazel initiate a recovery of the spring which is usually complete in mid-March
  • The first half of April, crops of dandelion and cherry in the hills of Tortona and Alessandria’s plains, allow a full development of families and depending on the year, they create a fine spingy mixed flower honey.
  • The month of May instead is totally dedicated to our main crop: acacia. Area of hills with a long and stepped flowering, shorter and accelerated crops in the plains of Alessandria and Lombardy, “the last acacia” of the Ligurian-Piedmont Apennines, allow us to “follow” this flowering, often performing two crops per apiary. Between late May and mid-June is the time for clear and fragrant mixed flower honey, composed mainly of lime nectar and tree of heaven.
  • Back on the road from plains to Apennines, hives face immediately after, the flowering of chestnut on altitude ranging from 400 to 750mt. A high protein and nutritious pollen, combined with a good nectar flow, makes the bees live a “second spring” that turns into an explosion of bees and broods.
  • In early July, finally, the honeydew of Metcalfa that we collect in the areas of Asti and Cuneo and lasts until late August, closes a long and tiring productive season.
