We'll spend a morning in our country house, on the edge of town and countryside, an old farmhouse surrounded by a flower-filled garden where our bees live. We will try varieties of honey to discover the different flavors, explore the garden and visit the hive to observe closely and understand how the bees live. Depending on the time of the year, we will have the opportunity to assist in the recovery of a swarm, smothering or pour honey into jars. There will be a tasting of our honey accompanied by a local cheese, a good dish of pasta, a dessert based on honey all watered with a complementary glass of wine.
Love for nature has joined me and my husband since the beginning of our relationship. We grow together a garden with passion, we welcome and raise animals and in particular, bees have always fascinated us by the great importance they have in the ecosystem, their incredible social organization and of course because we love honey! We grow and reproduce plants and flowers suitable for feeding our bees and we take care with devotion of our garden that, day after day, it looks more and more like paradise on earth where the bees are the queens.

Our house is in Olgiata, a residential area immersed in the green in the north part of the town, near by the Veio Archaeological Park. The garden is full of flowers visited by bees. The hives are located in a quiet place and sheltered next to the vegetable garden in front of a sunny field of wild herbs.
Come dressed in long pants and shoes and bring your camera.
