Where do we produce it?

We produce pine tree honey in North Evia, one of the three major honey producing forests in Greece together with Chalcidice and Thasos. We position our honeycombs in steep slopes that fall straight to the sea, for the unique advantage of providing bee’s graze with a flight range between sea side and alpine environment.
