First Honey Collection

Black bees and golden honey: The hundreds of thousands of black Canary bees which we keep at El Cabrito since last autumn have developed very well and are fulfilling their most important task namely pollinating the local plants. Two of the presently seven bee-hives have already become so strong this year that we can share their store of honey with them.

Not only our bee-keepers, Mathias and Miguel are happy about this first little honey collection. We are all happy, above all that we have obviously been successful in breeding and keeping these local black bees and thereby giving them back the habitat they used to have before they had been almost driven out by bee colonies brought from Europe.
