Abellaires Empordanesos Garriguella
We are a beekeeping company located in Garriguella, in Alt Empordà ( Girona ), dedicated to the production, packaging and marketing of honey and pollen, both from our own harvest and from other producer partners and beekeepers. In addition, for a few years, we have been producers of certified organic honey.
We started this activity in 1983, some partners alternated it with other agricultural work. In 2005 we made an investment to generate photovoltaic solar energy, contributing to respect for the environment with clean, non-polluting energy.
With the experience of a lifetime dedicated to the rural world, we firmly believe that only by respecting nature and living in harmony with the environment will we be able to offer a quality handmade product.
We also help the environment with the silent, constant and efficient work that bees do with the pollination of flowers and trees, thus contributing to the ecological balance, giving us an example of organization, teamwork and generosity.
We propose that you share with us, apart from honey and pollen (products that nature gives us through bees) a more natural and leisurely lifestyle, enjoying the biodiversity that surrounds us and that contributes to a better quality of life.
