Philosophy

Respect for our little teachers

Their life’s mission in this world, industriousness, cooperation, organization, precision, communication and their immeasurable benefit for all our lives deserve the utmost respect.

We really do appreciate our bees and try to facilitate their invaluable task of pollination through an intact nature that offers an abundant food supply. They work for and with us. Their reward is the honey they collect. We refrain from harvesting honey and leave this highly valuable food to the bees. This is an important point for the health of the bees, because only in honey are the ingredients that keep our little helpers strong and healthy.

Bees’ welfare on Es Fangar

Additional measures fort the bees’ welfare on Es Fangar:

We open our large hay bales directly on the pastures to make them small. As a result, flower seeds are widely spread on our pastures. In 2018, this measure has already ensured a great variety of flowers and grasses.

We regularly rearrange our haystacks on the pastures, which helps to spread the falling seeds over a larger area.

We leave pathways and pastures to the point of complete flowering, thereby enabling a large food supply for our bees until the end of July.

We grow legumes and vegetables in our finca garden until midsummer and ensure that flower nectar remains available for our bees during these months.

We do not harvest a part of the sown vegetables and let them bloom: a special tasty treat for our bees.

We take special care of our eucalyptus trees, which have some wonderful flowers that are especially appreciated by our bees.
