gruzínský med, georgian honey, Beekeeping in Georgia

Beekeeping and bee breeding has a long tradition in Georgia, according to archaeological findings over 5500 years old. A wide variety of bee products are produced in Georgia, the most valuable being honey.
The advantage of Georgian honey is also the fact that there are many areas in Georgia without industrial pollution, such as mountain meadows that are not polluted by agricultural activities. In addition to honey from these meadows and forests, Georgian beekeepers also produce honey from chestnuts, acacia trees and other special trees and plants, which give it a specific taste.
Climatic and natural conditions in Georgia are very favourable for bee breeding, mainly due to the diversity of different localities and their flora.
