We change the beekeeping
We keep our apiaries in static locations close to nectar flows as long as possible during the year however we rotate our hives depending on the nectar flow source and pollination. During most of the year our beehives are located in the wild and natural environment like forests, meadows, around river banks or wild shrub away from the industrial impact. If we decide to use large format honey flow we will make sure it has no impact on the bees.
We make sure we check with farmers first about the usage of pesticides and cooperate with farmers to change the field maintenance procedure if possible. If there is a risk of the chemical usage we change the location immediately to protect the bees.
We inspect but respect. We conduct regular brood inspections to check for health and bee wellbeing. We do not remove any honey, bee pollen, bee bread, royal jelly nor propolis from brood at any point in time during the whole year. Nothing at all. It always remains as an essential resource the way the bees planned it for themselves.
We pay respect to our bees during the time when we work with them. Whenever we open hive or transport bees to a new location we make sure we treat them gently and carefully. The goal is to provide safety and stress free conditions.
We always keep minimum honey level of 15kg per hive depending on the colony strength. We believe that abundance of honey in the beehive creates stress free living environment for the bees.
We strive to own the beehives which resemble to the environment of the wild tree hollow. We do not use styrofoam, styrodur or any other bee unfriendly materials to construct the hives for our bees. 95% of our hives are wooden made with elements of steel.
