Apiaria produces monofloral and polyfloral honeys characteristic of the territory:
Acacia, Linden, Thousand Flowers, Chestnut and Honey Dew.
The stationary apiaries are located among the hills in the province of Novara and in the mountains of Valsesia.They are moved from their locations solely for late bloomings in the surroundings or for a better overwintering.
In total respect of the super-organism hive, we don’t use chemicals to treat the
different pathologies of the hive. Instead we deal with them by using exclusively natural and biological methods. The nectar industriously collected by the bees remains raw, and it is extracted without employing the use of heat nor pumps that alter the structure, nutritional properties, and organoleptic qualities of the honey. This allows us to give the customers a healthy product that proudly represents the area of its production.
In the last years we researched internationally breeding lines that aim to the
stabilisation of fundamental genetical characters like tameness, resistance to
pathologies, productiveness and low tendency to swarming. We identified a couple
breeders that we are working with that are providing us with F0 Carnicas and
Buckfasts resulting into very clear genetical lines of F1 hybrids, efficient and
homogeneous in the distribution of characters.
