Bee keeping

Tuscan honey produced at Borgo Pignano, eco resort in Tuscany
The honey of Borgo Pignano, eco resort in Tuscany | Beekeeping in Italy
Extracting honey | Beekeeping in Italy | Borgo Pignano

Healthy bees are vital to the well-being of Borgo Pignano and, as bee colonies around the world collapse, we have taken pains to do everything possible to sustain them.

We tend a broad cross-section of flowers and plants that attract bees, give rise to the finest Millefiori flavoured honey and, most importantly, help with the pollination of vegetables and fruit trees.


Guests are invited to learn about bee-keeping and the traditional methods for extracting honey and beeswax while understanding the social structure linking the Queen bee, drones and worker bees.
