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.
The organic farm Alla Castagnola, run by Simona and her beloved life partner Axel, is located in Pallanza, on the shores of Lake Maggiore. Our apiaries are located at the foot of the special reserve of the Sacro Monte della Santissima Trinità di Ghiffa, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the slopes of Mottarone, along the banks of the Toce River. Our honey is guaranteed organic in its origin and processing by the strict controls of the ICEA Piemonte organic certification body, which are carried out periodically. In order not to alter the organoleptic composition of the honey in any way, the combs are uncapped by hand and the honey is extracted cold. In order to always offer a product of excellence, my husband and I have attended sensory analysis courses and passed the final exam so that we can register in the national register of experts in sensory analysis. This allows us to better select the honey produced by our bees and also to participate as judges in various competitions for the selection of the best honeys at national level. This year I took part in the beekeeping course and obtained the relevant certification. Since we believe that bees are magical beings because they are able to transform nectar into honey, resin into propolis and produce royal jelly from pollen, as well as wax, we wanted to take inspiration from the magical world of Harry Potter to identify the apiary that will be monitored. This is how the Hogwart's apiary was born (at the foot of the special reserve of the Sacred Mount of the Holy Trinity in Ghiffa) with Gryffindor - Hufflepuff - Ravenclaw - Slytherin boxes. This year we will monitor the progress of the Gryffindor hive.
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.
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.
