Garofalo Farm (Harvest 2020)
The Garofalo farm is run by Anna Lina Garofalo and her husband. They are two dedicated beekeepers who founded the company almost 40 years ago, and now have around 200 hives. The beehives are moved within a wide geographic range to take advantage of different flowering periods throughout the year.

The Anzivino family farm has around 40 beehives. It is run by Fabio Anzivino, a dedicated beekeeper who follows in the footsteps of his father, who founded the beekeeping enterprise. In order to produce the best yield, beehives are continuously moved within a 200 km range of the farm’s location according to flowering periods.

Anzivino’s family produces acacia, millefiori, orange blossom, coriander as well as a sunflower honey. Their sunflower honey is very rare and has a fresh, herbal aroma. The varieties we sell change throughout the year depending on the season.
