Our bees

Hardly anyone knows that bees are one of our most important livestock.

When they eat nectar and pollen, they carry pollen from flower to flower and thus ensure

the healthy and organic growth of our flowering and useful plants.

Our bee colonies are currently housed in six bee hives.

Interesting facts about bees

Most of us do not even realize how much work the bees put into honey. In order to produce 1 kg of honey, the busy buzzers have to fly to at least 3 million flowers.

Even the ancient Greeks knew its health-promoting effects. Like the ancient Egyptians before them; who also made use of the cosmetic properties of honey (not only in the legend of Cleopatra and her beloved donkey milk and honey baths). He still cares for delicate skin, supple lips and shiny, soft hair today. At the medical level, it is still valued for its anti-inflammatory, wound healing and antihypertensive effects. And for being a good ally in the fight against viral infections. With its naturally antibacterial effect, honey is now (again) used successfully against bacteria - especially against those that are now antibiotic-resistant. Even in the treatment of cancer, it is now used as a support - just like propolis (a resinous mixture of more than 200 different substances that the bees use as putty in their hives) and royal jelly (the fodder juice for the queen bees).

When heated to over 40 ° C, however, a large part of the natural active ingredients of honey is destroyed.
