About this project

 The vision is simple: We want introduce to the world the fantastic honey from the Sicilian Black Bees. And get the credits that this wonderful food deserve! 

But also more important, is that we want to save the bees from disappearing from our planet. Bees are now an endangered species, mostly because rises of viruses and wasps, but this is a reflection to the main issue that cause this; all the hives around the world use just two species of domesticated bees, which contribute to weak the specie in the big picture, and let them easily prone to epidemic disasters.

To the contrary, the Sicilian autochthonous Black Bees, are more strong, manageable, and easily resists to quick changes of temperature, predators and attackers.

Our vision is to export around the world Black Bee’s hives, and let species naturally mix themselves and get stronger genes, and actively contribute to save bees from a slow and terrible extinction.

We LOVE Bees!

 The project is to create a proper brand and produce the True Sicilian BlackBee Honey not just for us, our families and our friends, but also for retailers such as organic shops, delicatessen and various food’s shops.

We take lots of pride in our honeys, and we specialize in few amazing flavors, depending on the season: Orange or Citrus Blossom, Eucalyptus, Sicilian flowers, Sulla flowers, Walnuts and the very sought Medlar flowers.

Qualities, properties and method of production have awarded the Sicilian black bee’s honey as one of the finest, richest and healthiest, is also already been included inside the list of Certified Slow Food Presidium.

We are already inside a cooperative with other Sicilian certified black bee’s honey producers, therefore we could easily fulfill large demands, if a big buyer will come. Also create an e-commerce around it, with a dedicated and effective website with e-shop on it, able to process orders from all over the world.

Other than this, we want to commercialize the Black Bees themselves, able to selling the so called “bees Pack”.. A special box with a full swarm of certified Sicilian black bees, with or without their queen.

Rumors along Black bees Sicilian farmers has spread the word that even the Queen of England bought a pack of black bees from Sicily for adding to her own personal Royal hives…

 We’ve financed our business 100% ourselves and without debts. 

And this is already a big goal! But we also want to achieve our vision.. 

We wanted to keep it simple, and let the business grow organically and naturally (just like our honey!). But to take the next step and grow this vision is a big financial commitment, and we really need your help.
