Wat je gaat doen

I'll be happy to welcome you to my bee farm in Athens. We'll start discussing the history of the region and Greek mythology connected with Melissa (Greek word for bee). We'll talk about the structure and the function of a bee colony. Also about the importance of the bees in the eco-system and the food chain. A visit to the hives will follow where you'll observe a colony and have a hands-on experience if you wish to. Returning into the house I'll explain how bees make honey and give you some tips about tasting and recognizing special characteristics in honey. You'll have the chance to practice in a variety of top-quality local honeys. You may also try other hive products (pollen, royal jelly, propolis). Making your own "pasteli" or "rakomelo" in a workshop will be a delightful closure to your "bee experience". Finally, a light "buffet" meal will be served. You'll be able to buy honey and souvenirs. You'll also receive a little present from us! Keep in mind that the hive visiting part depends on the weather. We can't tour the beehives during rain, strong winds or less than 15*C. In these conditions, the entire tour will be at the veranda or in changed order.

I have found my path in life as a professional beekeeper for several years now. During past years I followed seminars in apitherapy, aromatics & medicinal plants, essential oils, traditional agricultural products. I'm the owner of "M..ellie's" apiary.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Our apiary is located in the garden of a cottage beside olive groves and vineyards at the foothills of Penteli mountain just 17 kilometers away from Athens International Airport.
