Organic honey from Canary black bees

El Cabrito has welcomed some hundred-thousand new helpers who will be buzzing about to make sure breakfasts feature a local speciality in 2019: Organic honey made by black Canarian bees. The finca is supporting a project run by Miguel and Mathias who breed and keep hives of the island’s indigenous black bees. When it comes to honey-making, El Cabrito’s remote location provides a perfect site: Its fruit trees, vegetable crops and especially the wild flowers on the hillsides all offer an endless supply of nectar. And by pollinating El Cabrito’s tree blossom and flowers, the busy Canary black bees help us cultivate our own organic crops.
