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

l Miele di Aristomaco is a very young beekeeping company, located in the municipality of Castrolibero, but founded in 2014 in Marano Marchesato, which produces very fine quality honey. The company was founded and run by Carlo Piro, a graduate in Mechanical Engineering, who as a hobby, in 2011, began to restore some hives abandoned in the garden of his brother Leonardo. Carlo bought his first bee families in 2011, fascinated by the beautiful and mysterious world of beekeeping. He manages to pass on his interest in the world of bees to his friend Francesco and together they create a fictitious company. In the space of a few months, the two friends, cutting corners, raised several families of bees, producing, in 2011, a few dozen kilos of single-flower honey, adopting the practice of nomadism. Enthusiastic about this experience, Carlo, on his own, starts to build more hives, reads many books on the subject, does continuous research and, finally, the first satisfactions arrive: that year he produces a few quintals of honey. Between 2012 and 2013, the future engineer, buying the necessary equipment, builds in an extremely professional way, 31 nomadic hives of the latest generation, increasing production to around 1000 kg. Carlo Piro (known as Aristeo) began to invest more and more and to multiply his workers, arriving at present at just under 100 hives. Today Carlo has a small company, "Il Miele di Aristomaco", his dream has come true. In 2015 the company has several hundred hives.

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.

What do you adopt

Together with the 3Bee agronomists we analyzed the best set of Plants to regenerate the soil, produce nectar and restore biodiversity to the area. Selected dozens of Italian Growers among Beekeepers and Farmers, provided them with the plants free of charge. We pay them every year for every plant they care for and grow.

Adopt a plant that helps sustainable beekeeping and farming communities, produce nectar for bees, absorb Co2 and offset your emissions.

If you choose to adopt trees and produce biodiversity, you will receive a digital certificate with all the impact data generated by your tree: the Name of the Tree, the Absorbed Co2, the Nectar produced.

In addition, the link to your digital Oasis where you will see the tree grow and you can monitor it and share it with your friends.
