To produce honey “Monoflorale” (one flower honey) the practice of ‘”Nomad Beekeeping“ is adopted. The nomad beekeeping is a way to move the hives from place to place depending on the presence of plants in bloom. Moreover, these displacements enable the production of flower honeys allowing a better supply of the final product. Today the movement of hives occur on the road: they are loaded at night (when all the bees have returned) and unloaded at sunrise
