Le ColonieLombardia, IT
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.
Le Colonie is a farm that deals with nomadic beekeeping, with a focus on the mountain flowers of the Valtellina region. Combining different experiences and visions we try to build a small reality on a bee-friendly, human-friendly and the environment in which we operate. Our beekeeping history began at a young age thanks to the passion inherited first from our grandparents and then from our parents, who passed on to us the love and respect for this small insect that is of great importance for biodiversity and for the life of our planet. We are nomadic beekeepers, we move around at night in search of pristine locations for the wellbeing of our bees and the maximum of our bees and the maximum healthiness of the product while seeking new and different flavours for each type of honey we produce. Over and above the objective risks and difficulties, we choose the mountains for the production of all our honeys with an area ranging from 650 m to 1800 m altitude depending on the flowering period. Our honeys are produced in limited quantities in the territories of Grosotto and Sondalo, in respect the environment and our bees. Our production is uncertain and difficult to quantify. Our passion for the mountains exposes us to further uncertainties due to the climate. All it takes is a sudden change in the weather to jeopardise a flowering that will perhaps only return the following year. When a product is not available, or production is limited, we will be happy to tell you why.
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.
