Honey

Halkidiki is the motherland of beekeeping. Over 6.500 beekeepers (32% of the country’s total) and 1.910 tons of production of high quality honey, annually, is sufficient to characterize Halkidiki as the center of beekeeping in Greece. Aristotle 2.300 years ago praised the honey and its benefits to man by saying that it prolongs life. Today the area’s beekeepers respect the tradition and exploit the rich fauna of Kassandra, Sithonia and North Halkidiki, in the most pure way by producing great quantities of quality honey of a high nutritional value.
