The product on which we mainly focus on is honey. Our selection includes thyme honey, heather honey and wildflower honey. All our honey is raw, unfiltered, unheated, and with no additives or preservatives of any sort. This is why it might show signs of crystallization after several months.
Honey holds a central place in the Greek diet and has a long cultural history since ancient and medieval times. Especially in Andros, as well as in the rest of the Cyclades, beekeeping and honey has been integral to the everyday life and economy of the islands since ancient times. Due to the dry climate of the country, Greek honey is more thick and less humid than usual. It has a unique, intense aroma, bringing together all the flavours of the local plants from which the bees collect pollen and nectar – wildflowers and medicinal herbs in the mountains, thyme and heather on the shores. Besides its high nutritional value, honey is known to have strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
All our honeys come in 250gr/8.82oz jars.
