Organic honey, lavender and thyme scented

A scented field of flowers, surrounded by lavender, and fifteen hives where bees can find a natural and suitable environment for them: this is how the Italian organic honey of Tenuta Del Cigno was born, a natural and precious food for the whole family 

Put a lot together api, fifteen arnie and an extended field with fragrant flowers, lavender and aromatic herbs, and the result will be surprising: a wonderful nectar, the Honey, since Antiquity used as a sweetener and preservative, that the same ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras considered "an elixir of life". 

At the Tenuta Del Cigno farm, at the gates of Modena, a green corner where you can breathe lavender air is dedicated to the cultivation of Organic Honey. With passion and with the utmost respect for the land in which we live and for nature which, as he claimed Aristotle, "never does anything useless", we keep precious guests, the bees, and we take care of them by creating the best conditions for their survival. Fifteen welcoming and colorful hives they were built for them to be safe and for them to be able to produce honey in peace, within an environment as natural as possible. In fact, for the construction of our hives we do not use any chemical or toxic substance that could harm them. 

The Honey of Tenuta del Cigno tells the land of origin, the scents and flowers of the place where the bees have foraged: the hives are in fact surrounded by four hectares dedicated to the cultivation of Organic Lavender of Modena®, from a French garden where we are dedicated to the cultivation of aromatic and medicinal herbs, And fragrant flowers. All these essences, these perfumes and these aromas "contaminate" our honey and the well-being of the bees, giving this product notes of wild flowers and aromatic herbs such as thyme. 

Good, genuine, organic

It is a one hundred percent product natural and handmade, which over time crystallizes; it is important to underline that this completely natural process indicates the good quality of the product. In short, when honey crystallizes, it is genuine! It means that it has not undergone industrial treatments and is therefore natural and authentic.
Furthermore, it is completely organic and it is not subjected to high-temperature processes: once the beekeeper has extracted the honey, i.e. removed from the comb, it is cold-processed without heating the honey and consequently altering the product. In this way all the nutritional characteristics are preserved and the product does not undergo any filtration process before being placed in the jar. 

Golden yellow, delicate flavour, intense aroma

If you present with a beautiful intense yellow color, warm and close to gold, to underline its sweetness.
Has a delicate flavor, which amazes for its authenticity, with notes of lavender, wildflowers and thyme. The scent is vaguely floral, with hints of acacia flowers, the taste is sweet and delicate.
