We are a family business dedicated to the divulgue of beekeeping and to obtaing prodcts from our own hives. We are in Montes de Toledo and in La Alcarria (Castilla La Mancha), regions with a great history and apicultural tradition where, for centuries, honeys have been obtained with a very appreciated and extraordinary quality.
We are committed to the traditional craftsmanship, being of vital importance for us the knowledge of the product. We belive in our methodology of work and we are very proud of the results.
With all our enthusiasm and work, we have created a space for any consumer to see how we produce honey and pollen and, the most important, how bees live. We want to be transparent, since the knowledge of the product is the key to make sense and value it. We strive to teach and encourage beekeeping, we explain the different benefits attributed to bees to save our planet and perform the pollination action.
Among other activities, we carry out workshops on Environmental Education, visits to beehives (Apitourism), Beekeeping workshops, Honey Tasting and other products of the hive... etc
Our obsession and objective is clear: the quality. To get the best honey, we mus take care in detail the process of harvest, processing and packaging. Therefore, our settlements and apiaries are locted in protected natural areas, with the ideal conditions to obtain a 100% organic, natural and ecological product.
We pack following rigorous sanitary controls without using high temperatures, nor pasteurizing processes to avoid altering its excellent propierties. The honey that we laborate is a raw honey that goes directly "from the honeycomb to the palate".

I met Miel de Melque in Callejón del Pozo Accommodations with some friends. They organized apiaries tours. Since then I am a strong consumer of its honey because of the guarantee and good taste they offer.
