Adopt a Beehive from Abruzzo

Adopt Your Own Beehive

  • Coming from an uncontaminated natural area within the ‘Gran Sasso & Monti della Laga’ National Park in the Abruzzo region in Italy.
  • Yearly analysis to prove the quality of the honey (will also be sent to you).
  • No chemicals!
  • The honey amount is guaranteed even if your beehive will not produce as much honey during the year*
  • You will be able to choose the type of the honey produced usually in (June & August)  depending on the flowers the bees collect during these months (Acacia, Millefiori, Chestnut or Coriander)
  • You will contribute to the reproduction of the bees’ population and with this, you help our planet.
  • The honey can be collected at the premises or can be shipped Worldwide (for an extra fee) after the 1st of September.

*Our beekeeper has a number of hives who allow us to put our part of the honey in case your hive’s production isn’t enough (which can normally happen). In case of a severe local or national honey shortage affecting the bees, we can’t guarantee the honey. We will never import it or blend it. We’ll just hope for a better harvest the following season.

Other useful information/FAQ

Is the honey raw, non-pasteurized?

We don’t do or add anything to the honey. It stays unaltered, natural, and raw as we get it from our bees. Thanks to this our honey is authentic and represents high-quality.

Can I gift the hive to someone?

Certainly! We had people adopting the hive as a gift for birthdays, baptisms, and anniversaries.  You can gift a hive to anyone, for example, your parents, grandparents, or friends. You won’t have to do anything, we will send an adoption certificate and ship the honey when ready.

We can also include your personal messages.

What type of honey will I receive?

Our bees generally give us these types of honey: Acacia, Millefiori, Chestnut and Coriander. However, this doesn’t depend on us, but on the bees and what flowers bloom in the season. If you wish to learn more about honey & bees, book our virtual beekeping online experience. For example, for gaining the chestnut honey in July: we take the hives to the mountains, where the chestnut trees are, and let the bees do the rest of the job.

When will I get the Honey?

The honey can be collected at the premises or can be shipped Worldwide (for an extra fee) after the 1st of September.
