We’ve loved bringing you the finest extra virgin olive oil and specialty cheese from Puglia. Now we are so excited to introduce our newest program, Adopt a Beehive.
Adopt a Beehive lets our customers (that’s you!) select and “adopt” a beehive from a specific family honeybee farm in Puglia. By adopting a beehive, you are making an upfront contribution that supports independent farmers and producers in ensuring a high quality product.
Farmed using organic and sustainable methods according to proud artisanal tradition, the honey from our partner farms is expressive and full of terroir. It’s incredibly fresh and uniquely flavorful. We ship your honey straight from the family farm producer to your home. By adopting a beehive, you receive two 500-gram jars of honey in seasonal flavors—Millefiori Mountain, Acacia, Orange, or Coriander—sourced directly from a Pugliese farm. The jars of honey will arrive in a wooden crate with a classic honey dipper, a bee tea towel, and a Certificate of Adoption that includes the name of the farm, number of the hive, and the date of harvest.

Our honey producers include Garofalo Farm and Anzivino Farm. The former is run by Anna Lina Garofalo and her husband, two dedicated beekeepers who founded their company almost 40 years ago. Now they tend around 200 hives in the “Apicoltura Ceglia,” near the Regional Park of the Bosco Incoronata. Anzivino Farm is the family farm of Fabio Anzivino, who took over 40 beehives from his father. While the company is based in Orsara di Puglia, the beehives are continuously moved to follow the flowering periods in the surrounding area, to ensure the finest honey.
Three reasons we hope you’ll love our Adopt a Beehive program:
- It’s good for the earth. The population of bees has been in a rapid decline across the globe. Bees help nurture and support the environment, and nearly one-third of the food we eat relies on bees for pollination. beekeeping supports the bee population by providing bees with a steady source of food.
- Support small farmers. Your contribution will ensure family farms in Puglia continue to thrive.
- You’ve never tried honey so delicious. This silky sweet honey is fragrant, smooth, and nearly impossible not to love. Whether you’re stirring it into your tea, drizzling it over vanilla ice cream, or using it to glaze veggies, you’ll taste the difference.
