Our way of beekeeping.
In our effort to preserve the high quality of Cretan Bee raw honey we rotate our hives between different blossoming areas. Up on the mountains for pine honey collection, or closer to the sea where the herb thyme grows in abundance. In this way, we help bees feed from various wild flowers, herbs or trees and allow the bee hive to naturally blend different types of honey. As a result, we have the opportunity to harvest both thyme honey enriched with wild herbs and pine and thyme honey, which both contain one of the highest antioxidant activity ratings in the world.
- We do not use any pesticides or chemicals to treat our hives.
- We don't process our honey.
