ABOUT US


We grew up surrounded by nature. Nature itself taught us to respect its rhythms, and so our company and our products follow its rules, every single day.

The perfection of the orchard’s seasonal cycles, the power of the bees and their diligence in their work are a constant source of inspiration for us. This way of working is strengthened by our continuous search for innovative technologies that can best preserve what nature gives us.

From the hives to the orchards, today Apicoltura Casentinese is a thriving company.
And what about us?

We are entrepreneurs who turned a dream into reality:
preserving the gifts of nature through innovation.

OUR STORY

FROM DREAM TO BUSINESS

Our story began in 1982 with nothing but a dream, 100 beehives and a lorry to work with.
It all originated from the bees, since it is their amazing world that inspires our passion and respect for nature, which as a company philosophy we have now broadened to include fruit and all our products.

What wonderful, crazy memories we have of those busy early years, when we were moving our beehives all around Italy searching for the perfect blossoms to make our honey.

NOMADIC BEEKEEPING


Have you ever heard of nomadic beekeeping?
It is a beekeeping practice that allows honey to be gathered moving the hives from place to place, according to seasonal flowering, from spring to summer. It was the technique we used at the start of our venture.

BEEKEEPING AND ‘BEE-KNOWING’


For us, beekeeping is first and foremost ‘bee-knowing’. What do we mean?
Basically, spreading knowledge of bees and nature through the world of the sweet. This path of growing while deeply respecting nature is an important one for our company.

NOT JUST BEES: JAMS

FRUIT, PERFECT AS IT IS

In 2011 we decided to expand our range of products and began to specialise in the production of organic jams with no added sugar. This new venture has been guided by the same passion and values as always: preserving nature, perfect the way it is! Our jams stand out for what they DON’T contain! No added sugar, no preservatives, no flavouring.

Just plenty of fruit selected straight from the organic farming fields, grape juice and lemon juice.
