The production takes place by taking the honey stored by the bees, in the cells of the honeycombs, where it is extracted by centrifugation, left to settle in special containers and returned to jars. These are the only processes that allow us to keep the characteristics of the product intact to offer it exactly as the bees produced it.
Honey is the most abundant product of the hive: bees produce it in large quantities, especially if they find a favorable season and abundant pasture. Honey is a sugary substance, with a viscous consistency, varying in color from light blond to amber, to more or less dark brown, depending on the flowers from which it comes; it is produced starting from the nectar of the flowers, reworked and regurgitated in the cells of the honeycomb, where it is stored.
