Halkidiki is considered to be the “motherland” of honey, which is probably true since there are 6.500 honey makers who produce 1.910 tonnes of high honey annually.
Wherever you look in Halkidiki -in the north, Kassandra, Sithonia or east coast-
you will see colourful beehives dotting hills and forests.
2,400 years ago, Aristotle, praised honey and its nutritional value to a man supporting that it prolongs life. Today the area’s beekeepers exploit the rich fauna of Halkidiki, in the purest way by producing great quantities of quality honey of a high nutritional value.
