Our company is a family owned company that follows a long tradition of beekeeping. It was founded by people with extensive experience in the production of pure-virgin Cretan honey. Company islocated in the village of STERNES(GORTYNA Municipality) at the outskirts of the ASTEROUSIA Mountains in southern CRETE. Our intention was to make well known and easily accessible to everyone, the nutritional treasure that the unique biodiversity of our place generously offers. The areas in which our bees are located at Asterousia Mountains (MARIDAKI) and Mount Dikti(SELAKANO),are protected by the pan-European NATURA 2000 network, because of their unique environmental importance, which is due both to their geographical isolation and limited human presence.
The seaside coast at MARIDAKIand the virgin pine forest at SELAKANO create pure natural environmental conditions for the production of a high nutritional value treasure, the “MINOAN BEE” honey.
Especially in our region where many endemic herbs and virgin thyme thrive, honey’s features stand out. The special climate of our place creates the perfect conditions for the wild mountain flora to deliver premium quality honey with a unique aroma and taste.
