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 farm "Mario Patroni" was founded in 1998 by taking over the family business. It is located in the municipality of Sernio (So) in the upper Valtellina, in an area that has always been dedicated to the breeding and cultivation of fine apples. Starting as a marginal activity, beekeeping has become increasingly important. Today we manage more than 100 beehives located in 4 apiaries at different altitudes in the woods of the area. The bees spend the winter on the Rhaetian side most exposed to the sun, where they produce acacia honey in spring. In summer they are then moved between the different apiaries for the production of wildflower mountain honey, linden honey or the prized wildflower high mountain honey produced in the "campasc" location at 1700m above sea level. Great attention is paid to the sustainable management of the activity with maximum respect for the bees and their rhythms, and their (and our) environment. The laboratory of honey extraction, for example, is powered by a photovoltaic system.
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.
