Description 

250 grams 8.8 ounces - organic - Italy

A very rare honey. Filippo's bees are allowed to collect their nectar in the famed bergamot groves of Calabria, on the Tyrrhenian Coast of Calabria in May during the height of the Bergamot blooming season. The result is a tangy, fruity honey, with the slightest hint of bergamot. Perfect with a slice of hearty bread with butter, in your hot cup of black tea, or drizzled on top of your morning pinhead organic oatmeal.

About the Producer - Solmielato:
Since he was a child, Filippo Leonardi knew that his life would be dedicated to bees. At the age of twelve he began to take great interest in his father, Salvatore’s, activities in keeping bees and making honey. In 1977, Filippo decided to buy his first family of bees and start his own apiary and begin to perfect the processes of caring for honey bees and making quality honey.

In 1984, after receiving his accounting degree, Filippo took the big step of following in his father’s foot-steps, and established his own commercial beekeeping business. Over the following few years, Filippo invested in expanding his apiaries, perfecting his bee tending and honey making skills, building out his processing facilities, building relationships with local organic growers, and identifying the best and most pristine places in Italy to let his bees roam.

In 2000, Filippo took the steps necessary to officially certify his operation as organic. He felt it was the best choice not only for his customers and for the quality of his honey, but for his bees.

About Filippo's Bees:
Filippo is totally dedicated to the health and well-being of his bees. He is constantly working to keep his honey boxes in pristine condition, he is careful to keep the boxes at least 40 centimeters above the ground to minimize humidity and other unfavorable environmental factors, and always leaves enough honey in the hive to keep his bees well fed and well nourished.

Faithful to his bees and maintaining organic production, Filippo works to stay “tuned-in” to his bees and work in rhythm with his workers. He often delays or pairs-back production if he perceives that his bees are nervous or stressed. Additionally, Solmielato does not use any chemicals in its treatment or care of its bees, but uses multiple natural methods and applies them more frequently to keep the bees healthy.
