For us, nomadic beekeeping is a way of life, expression and culture.
By developing our apiarian equipment, maintaining the traditional practical procedure of the Mourikis Family, we envisage to continue producing beekeeping products with the same desire and love as our father did 60 years ago, adding our identity to a contemporary and evolutionary world with an endless desire for pure traditional products WITH GREEK IDENTITY AND VALUE.
Following the traditional practice of nomadic beekeeping with right techniques which are environmentally respectful as well bee itself, we take from the Greek nature the honey and other bee products. After years of experience we transfer our beehives to flowering mountains, forests and fields away from any human intervention. From Messini, where our apiary is located we reach up to Thasos and from Central Macedonia up to Continental Greece(Sterea Ellada) we transfer our beehives, depend on the flowering season, for the hunting of sweet treasure of nature which is called HONEY.
In November 2020 we created a permanent apiary on the island of Cyclades, Kimolos, to enrich the wide range of honey varieties we produce with thyme honey and Kimolos wild lavender.
