HONEY FROM OUR FARM:
We are a two-person family business operating in Ylä-Savo, Lapinlahti. We are already working in the second generation, Kari's father Erkki Lappi started beekeeping in 1976. In 2013, he was awarded the title of "Beekeeper of the Year".
Although our honey is delicious, pollination is still the most valuable product of bees. The value of pollination is many times the value of the honey crop. It is estimated that insects pollinate 80 percent of the world's plant species. The rest of the plants are wind or self-pollinated. Beekeeping is an effective way to promote biodiversity. Our beehives are used e.g. in the pollination of strawberries, boysenberries and raspberries on berry farms in Lapinlahti. In addition, our bees are used to control gray mold when bees apply a biological pesticide to strawberry and raspberry flowers. The bees fly within a radius of about 2km from the nest, so there is a huge number of plants to be pollinated during the summer.
There are currently more than 20 apiaries and they are located within a radius of about 20 km from the center of Lapinlahti.
All our apiaries meet the requirements of the location in accordance with the regulations of ORGANIC.
