APICULTURE

Honey is the epic of love, 
the materialization of the infinite. 
The soul and the blood of flowers 
condensed through the spirit of others. 

Federico García Lorca.

Our quality of life is directly linked to the health of our planet and this, in turn, is directly linked to the existence of pollinators, specially bees.

Nectar transformed into honey is an elixir for human health. There probably is no other substance healthier for human consumption than the mature honey sourced from a strong hive that lives in a diverse environment without contaminants.

No other pollinator has so much influence on our food production than the bee. More than a third of what we produce and eat depends on this particular insect. In addition, bees are key promoters of flowering plant diversity, making them pillar in the planet’s health. An active colony may pollinate more than three million flowers in one day.

Pollination is an act that allows the formation of fruit and the emergence of seed: symbols of hope, potentiality, and future.

In Valle La Paz we have worked with different types of native bees: Scaptotrigona mexicana, Melipona fasciata, Nannotrigona perilampoides, Partamona bilineata and Apis mellifera.

For the bee, the essence of a flower is fountain of life, and, for the flower, the bee is a fountain of love.

Part of our soil is cultivated with “acahuales”, a varied flowering vegetation that emerges spontaneously around farm land when herbicides are absent from the soil. During autumn, a great variety of sunflowers nurture the hives with an exquisite nectar that is transformed into one of the richest honeys in the world: Mexican honey.
