What do we Offer

On our farm we keep and look after of 130 bee families. We specialize in production of natural honey, that is got from forests and natural meadow pasture in the valleys of the river Nemunas. We sort honey according to the time of bloom of plants (spring blossoms, raspberries, lime, meadows, etc,).

In Lithuania cultural, that is received from specially sowed plants - rape, buckwheat and others, is increasing. We can't avoid this kind of honey in our apiary either. as the harvest of cultural honey is very abundant and not so valuable (for fertilizing pants, spraying pests) it is sold much cheaper.

Natural In a forest, valleys of rivers, natural meadows 15-50 Kg 10-20 Lt

About Honey

In the honey that is kept warmly or warmed in higher than +30 ºC. temperature, honey splits and appears a poisonous combination – hydroksimetilfurfurol The honey that has hydroksimetilfurfurol makes some layers. On the surface a dark layer appears, and honey loses its aroma, bacterium ability to destroy micro organisms, because of peroxide that is piled up honey), increases acidity. Therefore honey can't be heated, and if its is heated twice, it does not crystallize any more (it remains liquid).

How does unheated honey look like? The honey collected from blossoms (nectar) crystallizes during 1-2 months, a white honey foam appears of the surface, remains a white honey glucose (blooming honey) on the walls of a dish. The honey that remains liquid (but not because of heating), is not of nectar origin melliferous dew.

Melliferous Dew of Leaves

In summer on trees and grass plants appear a sticky liquid, that is called melliferous dew, plant-louse and other names. Bees lick and bring home this fluid like honey. In a hot summer nearly almost there is sweet liquid on the leaves of trees. Bees rush to take this fluid in the morning, until it is not too thick.

When the weather is stuffy, one can often see, that bees lick stems of bents. If you pass the stem of a bent over your fingers, you can see a liquid drop on them. If there are a lot of such days in the summertime bees collect a lot of melliferous dew.

Melliferous dew ooze out on most of leaves of the trees: oaks, limes, maples, willows, asps, nut-trees, fur-trees, pines and others. As well they can ooze out on leaves and stems of grass and stems. Sometimes there is so much of melliferous dew that as dew falls down the leaves.

Melliferous of Insects

Research has shown that the sweet fluid on leaves is thrown not only by louses (plant-louses) but a lot of insects and their caterpillars. For instance a lot of melliferous dew on fur -trees and pines are made by: Chermes….. On oaks except the insects mentioned before, melliferous dew is also made by Vacuna…. On an alder -Erinaum. There other insects on other kinds of that make melliferous dew.

In the apiaries that are close to forests, honey, especially the dark one, most often is made of melliferous dew.

Kinds of Honey

Honey is made by bees from collected nectar and melliferous dew. Nectar or blossom honey, collected from one kind of plants, is called mono florial, and collected from different plants -poly florial . Mono florial honey's biological influence for the organism is not the same.

Dandelion honey is golden, of bitter taste, very odorous. It is recommended from pain, inflammation of breathing organs, for decreasing acidity of gastric juice.

Raspberry honey - light, of pleasant but strong odour. It is used for treatment from catching cold.

Lime honey - light yellow, of pleasant lime blossoms scent. It is used from cold diseases (flue, quinsy, laryngitis, bronchitis), to treat liver and kidney diseases, as well purulent wounds.

Meadow honey is poly florial, i.e. collected from a lot of plants blossoms, of pleasant taste, yellow or yellowish brown. It has a lot of aromatic materials, not so little vitamins of groups B and C. It is useful for those who feel weak and for treatment flu diseases.

Clover honey - light yellow, almost white, of kind and pleasant taste. It used for increasing acidity of gastric juice and treatment of liver diseases.

Rape honey - white or light yellow, of weak pleasant scent, is a little bitter. It is used for decreasing acidity of gastric juice, treatment of liver diseases.

Heath honey is dark yellow with brownish shade, has strong scent similar to heath blossom's odour, is a little bitter. It is used for treatment of kidney, urinary bladder, prostata.

Buckwheat honey is dark, reddish or nearly brown, has a strong scent and taste. It has more iron and albumen, therefore it is used from anaemia, alleviates children and teenagers' pubescence pains, calms nervous system, strengthens organism.

Melifferous honey is collected from aphid secretion, it differs from blossom honey. It has more dextrins, mineral materials, saccharose, less inverted sugar, than nectar honey. Especially much it has alkaline metals -potassium, natrium salt. As there is less water and more albumen, dextrins in mellifferous honey, it is twice or three times thicker than blossom honey. This honey is not suitable for bees' winter food, but is very useful for a man.
