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

Mine is a small professional beekeeping business that started about 10 years ago. I manage about 200 hives located in 4 permanent apiaries where I produce Spring Wildflowers and Acacia, and in 2 apiaries where I also produce chestnut. I then move the bees to mountain apiaries in the Biella area and in the Aosta Valley for the production of mountain wildflowers and rhododendron. The apiary closest to home (Bornasco) is used for pollen collection. For almost all the displacements, I am helped by John, a refugee boy, who has been following me in this adventure for three years now. Finally, I dedicate myself to the reproduction of nuclei (new families of bees) that I sell to other beekeepers or to those who want to start breeding bees.

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.
