About Us

Our story started in April 1978 when a young bee queen, followed by her swarm, established her new home on a branch of an olive tree in my grandfather’s property. Instead of removing them, my grandfather decided to place the swarm in a beehive under the care of a local beekeeper.

Since then, the observation of these unique creatures took us all on a magical journey. My grandfather’s love for bees was passed down through generations to his son, and today, his grandchildren, who continue to practice beekeeping in honor of his memory.

Maintaining a family tradition of forty years, we continue with love for beekeeping to offer our products.

Our Story

Our story starts on April 1978 when a young and shiny bee queen, followed by her swarm, decided to establish her new home on a branch of olive tree in my grandfather’s property. Dealing with this problem my grandparent decided to take care the swarm by putting them in a beehive with the help of a local beekeeper. Since then a magic trip started by observing this unique creature. His love for the bees is passed down to his son and nowadays, us, his grandchildren, continue this hobby honoring his memory.
Today we run a small beekeeping family business at Stironas village, with limited honey production in order to keep the quality and taste in highest level.
