The story of Melaya began in 2012 when we received our first beehive from a beekeeper friend. Being a lover of nature, Christoph was so fascinated by these little hardworking creatures that he began to study beekeeping and bees extensively, learning all he could about them, till we eventually started our own honey harvesting farm.
The direction was clear from the start. Honey should be produced as sustainably as possible, following what bees do naturally. This means letting the bees build their own honeycombs and not removing drone cells. We also support swarming in our hives and minimize disturbance to the bees, encouraging them to reproduce naturally.
The results of Melaya’s dedicated beekeeping practices are happier, healthier bees, that thrive, and premium, raw Swiss honey, produced in finest quality. Melaya honey is raw, unpasteurized and unheated, and is bottled with all its precious enzymes, pollens and nutrients.
