Organic Whole Honey
from the Trieste Karst 🐝

The  organic line of Alveare products  was born from the desire born in 2010 to also become beekeepers .

Tasting our Italian Organic Honey, it will be possible to savor the passion and tradition that accompany the VonDerWeid company, combined with the unmistakable taste of the Karst region near Trieste.

We raise our bees in uncontaminated areas of the Trieste and Gorizia Karst

Our bees live in different uncontaminated areas of the Karst and the Trieste Coast and produce a very high quality honey, with a peculiar taste given by the territory in which it is extracted.


Our bees are raised with organic methods

The organic farming method bans the use of any chemical treatment. This is particularly important because in the fight against Varoa we use only natural products and family management techniques such as brood suspension.

Collection

The Karst is an arid territory where a strong north-east wind often blows, called the “Bora“. These particular geoclimatic conditions make the plants that inhabit it very rich in active ingredients and essential oils.


Honey extraction

The honey extraction, which is the final stage of production, takes place directly in our headquarters.

Packaging

Once the honey extraction is complete, we put all the honey in our special jars.

Organic Beekeeping:
what does it entail?

🐝 Per quanto riguarda le norme in materia di apicoltura biologica, il Regolamento specifica che:

 

  • Per prima cosa tutti gli apiari devono essere condotti secondo il metodo di allevamento biologico. È fondamentale che nel raggio di 3 km dal luogo in cui si trovano vi siano coltivazioni biologiche e flora principalmente spontanea.

 

  • Le arnie e il materiale utilizzato in apicoltura sono fabbricati essenzialmente in materiali naturali.

 

  • Inoltre, non è permesso nessun tipo di trattamento chimico: particolarmente importante nella lotta alla Varroa destructor, per la quale utilizziamo solo prodotti naturali e tecniche di gestione delle famiglie, come la sospensione di covata.

Miele certificato Biologico:
cosa comporta?

We firmly believe in organic farming , in its objectives , in its rigor and in its respect for the environment, even if this means being more dependent on natural events (such as rains or droughts) and sometimes risking to obtain yields lower than those obtainable from a traditionally exploited field.
