I am part of 3Bee's 'Oasis of Biodiversity' project. You can adopt one of my hives. This project allows me to regenerate biodiversity by caring for bees using innovative technologies developed by 3Bee. Here you can choose to adopt your hive from a distance and I will take care of it using the best techniques.

My history

My company was born in 2013 following a long period of convalescence that kept me away from my job for 23 months. It was at this particular time in my life that I started with just a few hives, but I soon grew to have around 50 hives. I live in Cascio, a beautiful village in the splendid Garfagnana, the hilly mountainous part of Lucca, a wonderful place surrounded by greenery, far from intensive agriculture and pollution. The main productions are acacia and chestnut, but depending on the season you can produce an excellent mountain wildflower and forest honeydew as well as propolis and pollen. My 2 locations are in Gallicano where I produce the much-prized acacia, and for the chestnut and millefiori at S.Pellegrinetto at 950 metres above sea level in the municipality of Vergemoli, a charming and unspoilt place with a breathtaking view of the Apuan Alps, a true paradise for bees. I had a great satisfaction in 2020 when I was awarded in Castel San Pietro with two gold drops with acacia honey as one of the best honeys in Italy. on 30 September 2022 in lazise I won the first prize "ape D'oro" as the best Italian acacia honey.

What do you adopt

Thanks to 3Bee technology, you can remotely adopt your chosen hives and monitor them 24 hours a day. By tracking the bees' main biological parameters - such as weight, temperature, humidity and sound intensity - you can follow their progress, growth and health status directly from your smartphone. The beekeeper will take care of your bees.

You will also receive your digital certificate via email. If the adoption is a gift, you can print it out and give it directly to the recipient.

What do you receive

If you choose to adopt hives and receive their honey, once your bees produce it, you will receive their honey directly to your home. All you have to do is select the favorite flowering, the amount of honey you want to receive, and wait for your bees to produce it.

We respect the bees' and beekeeper's production time, and you can check in your profile when the honey is scheduled to be delivered.
Meanwhile, from the app you can follow the work done by your bees.
