Gardens - Beehives

Honey is almost as ancient and natural as time. The old Egyptian legend tells of honey beingthe “living tears of the sun god Ra.” Honey was very rare, mainly used as a medicine and also as a means for mummification. It was a symbol of fertility and has restorative properties. The Romans also used its preservative properties. Honey was important sweetener for them and the base for the production of mead. In the middle ages beekeeping and honey production was supported by the nobility and monasteries, for food and income. We have 40 beehives in our gardens. After collection and extraction, the honey is carefully filtered, but nothing is added to ensure purity and the protetion of the most valuable substances.
