If SUA are called “Land of opportunity”, then Romania must be called “Land of Milk and Honey”. At least this is what we think so, here at Ferma de Miere.
The Thracian people who lived at the North of the river Danube were skilled beekeepers since the 5th century, a fact proven by Herodot, who was impressed by the well-being of the bees and bee hives in those parts of Europe. Bee related products were always cherished by Romanians; there are written evidences from the Middle Ages showing the tax discharge on bee products such as honey and bee wax. This law was adopted to stimulate beekeepers all over the country and maintain this ancient craft.
Romania is still covered in large savage areas of forest and plains full of pollen-rich wild flowers, the main raw material used by a highly skilled worker: the honey bee. The crops pollination it’s made by the bees, preserving the natural wildlife balance and providing the best natural honey. Linden honey, forest honey, wild flower honey, acacia honey, rape honey, sunflower honey – are just some of the varieties of honey collected from our hives.
Best natural beekeeping conditions are also proved by the big number of villages bearing beekeeping-related names like Stuparei, Stupini, Prisaca, Albinari, etc.
The European fondness towards the so-called “eco products” and the all-natural directly-from-the-hive honey collecting process, lead to the export of 80% of Romanian honey production quota of 2011 in countries like France and Germany, proving once more that the Romanian honey is at best quality.
International recognition of this no-expiry date product entitles us to put an end to this article with a single phrase: don’t trust our words, come and taste our Romanian honey to convince yourselves of its quality!
