A great family meal packed full of vegetables, tomato and herbs with mince and a creamy bechamel sauce.
Everything started as a game, when I was just 16 years old (2011). I was
amazed by the bee world. Creating a bee colony and monitoring how this world
grows and survives, was something truly spectacular. Without a beekeeping
history running in our family, I had to learn the old-fashioned way. This meant

After 9 years of commitment and having the necessary expertise in the
field, our team manages to produce honey in sufficient quantity and always
driven by excellent quality. Our need for evolution and our external thoughts
resulted in the creation of a new brand, which goes by the name of “Philomelia”.
A brand that from the very first moment was welcomed and embraced by the local
community and was also distinguished in an international, acknowledged, tasting
competition conducted in England (Great Taste Awards). At the same time, we are
currently constructing our new honey packing plant, which will complete our
journey of production. From day one till today, everything has fitted together
perfectly. In slow, but steady steps we walk our way into our dreams and look
towards the future with great optimism.
