About

Hace 3 años iniciamos Son de Miel para fomentar la distinción y consumo de mieles mexicanas. 
Three years ago Son de Miel was created with an idea to foment the distinction of different types of honey varietals and in turn promote the consumption of mexican honey. 

 

En el camino nos dimos cuenta de la importancia que tienen las abejas nativas para los ecosistemas y que es necesario promover un manejo responsable e integral, que no sólo se centre en la miel, sino que incluya aspectos ambientales y sociales.

On this journey we have discovered how much our ecosystems rely on native bees, and of their importance in nature. With this Project we seek to communicate an integral, responsible manner of looking at bees and honey, that is not only honey-centric yet goes beyond this sweet stuff and takes into consideration environmental and social factors.

Por esta razón hemos trabajado con apicultores y meliponicultores quienes buscan un equilibrio entre el cuidado de su familia, las abejas y el medio ambiente y colaboramos con la Red de Meliponicultura Agroecológica (REMA) 

With this in mind we work with beekeepers and “meliponicultores”( native bee beekeepers) who seek out a balance within caring for their own family, caring for bees, and also caring for the environment, and we collaborate with REMA - Agroecological Meliponiculture Network

Cada abeja viaja 40 kilómetros y visita unas 7,200 flores en toda su vida para producir 5 gramos de miel, por lo que cada frasco es una síntesis del territorio y un regalo inestimable. 

Each bee travels 40 kilometers and visits around 7,200 flowers in its whole lifespan to produce 5 grams of honey (a teaspoon), for this reason each jar is a synthesis of our territory and a precious gift.

El objetivo principal de nuestro proyecto es promover el esfuerzo en colectivo para buscar la valoración de las abejas y su papel clave en el medio ambiente. 

Our main goal is to transmit this collective effort in order to truly appreciate the bees and the essential role they play in the environment.

Con esta campaña buscamos fortalecer 3 meliponarios ubicados en Veracruz (Coatepec), Puebla (Cuetzalan) y Oaxaca (Rancho Grande) y difundir la diversidad de abejas sin aguijón que hay en nuestro país.

Our campaign wishes to strengthen three “meliponarios” - native bee apiaries, located in Coatepec, Veracruz; Cuetzalan, Puebla; and Rancho Grande, Oaxaca with this momentum we will be able to transmit the great diversity of native bees México is home to.

Los recursos los usaremos para mejorar las colmenas y hacer reforestaciones con árboles nativos, que serán el alimento y hogar de más abejas.

The resources needed are to better each hive and reforest those areas with endemic plants, home and sustenance to the bees.

Risks and challenges

Como todo proyecto del campo, dependemos por completo de las condiciones climáticas, que cada día son más cambiantes. Sin embargo, al trabajar con familias que viven en parcelas libres de agrotóxicos, apoyamos a que las abejas tengan las mejores condiciones posibles para su reproducción.

Like all projects carried out in the field, we solely depend on climatic conditions that each day fluctuate more and more. Nonetheless, when working with families that live on parcels free of agro-toxins we are able to support a better surrounding with the best possible conditions for the bees development.
