sLOVEnia BEEKEEPING EXPERIENCE
BEST BEEKEEPING EXPERIENCE IN SLOVENIA
Beekeeping occupies a special place in Slovenia's economy as one of its oldest traditional crafts. The Carniolan honeybee (Apis mellifera carnica) or the Carniolan grey bee, is an autochthonous species in Slovenia, which means that no other bee species are allowed to be kept. Honey, their product, is more than just a sweetener: it has healing properties and is used as the basis for many beauty and medicinal products.
