Mielizia Beekeepers

Our membership boasts over 600 beekeepers, both male and female, who share a passion for bees, the products they give us and nature.

They protect these precious insects and accompany them to the areas with the most abundant flowerings, waiting for the best moment to share the harvest with them and offer us the finest honey, pollen and royal jelly.

Mielizia beekeepers nurture biodiversity, working in harmony with bees and, from Piedmont to Sicily, they look after them, creating just the right conditions to enable them to thrive. Among the first in Italy to adopt organic production techniques, we are currently the leading European producers of organic honey.

I remember the day we took the first boxes into our first apiary, with the car loaded with around 15-20 nucs. It was located in a field overlooking the house. It started raining while we were unloading the car and the rain got heavier and heavier until the car was stuck in the mud and we were completely soaking.
