3Bee Technological Hive Adoptions

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

The Azienda Agricola I Gherbin was established in 2014 as a result of my curiosity and the passion handed down by my grandfather Giuseppe for the fantastic world of beekeeping, who called the little house where the bees live 'Gherbin', which derives from the Piedmontese dialect, and hence the name of the company. In fact, in early spring the Roero provides us with dandelion honey and wildflower honey: the former is very intense both in the mouth and in the nose, known for its purifying properties and very rare; the latter is a riot of flavours taken from our orchards and meadows; then comes the blossoming of the Acacia, surely the most delicate honey... a confection! June/July we find the summer wildflower and honeydew honeys. In the latter the soothing, antibacterial and mineral-rich properties stand out, reminiscent of caramel. Also in June I move part of my bees to the foot of the nearby mountains in the Cuneo valleys, thus obtaining Chestnut 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.
