What is Apinature?

Apinature is a Spanish company created by young entrepreneurs in 2017 with the aim of giving an added value to the beekeeping sector, satisfying the needs of different types of customers.

In Apinature we strive every day to offer our customers the highest possible quality in our products. For this, we work in a similar way to what the old families of beekeepers did, who raised their bees and collected their products as a result of their effort and love for nature.

Friendship

This project was born when two good friends decided to share some of their great passions: scientific research, conservation of the environment and interest in the exciting world of bees.

Family tradition

Family tradition and the experience of three generations of beekeepers, provides ample knowledge to the founders of Apinature to undertake this project, always seeking the balance between this tradition and the basis of success and progress: innovation.

What does it do?

Our company carries out the breeding of bees on a 100% sustainable and respectful way, using all the traditional products offered by the hive (honey, pollen, propolis …) as well as another much more innovative and unknown: bee venom or apitoxin. Currently, we are working to incorporate new products that will allow us to open new lines of business for the company.

On the other hand, we offer two types of services related to the beekeeping activity:

Guided visits to the apiary for small groups and schools

This visit includes several informative workshops based on the use of resources offered by bees, such as wax or honey

Swarm removal service for individuals

In our attempt to protect a species so important to the ecosystem and at risk of extinction as the bee, we make ourselves available to anyone who needs the removal of a swarm of bees from their private property, ensuring the survival of all the bees in it.

Where is it located?


Located in the heart of the Lecrín Valley, we are in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of the province of Granada. Region located in the central part of the province, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. This region is formed by eight municipalities: El Pinar, Nigüelas, Albuñuelas, Dúrcal, Lecrín, El Padul, El Valle and Villamena.

The Valley of Lecrín is a very special region due to its strategic location, its peculiar orography, its great diversity of plants and flowers, the different springs of water that irrigate it and the innumerable days of sunshine per year; all this, as a result of its situation southwest from Sierra Nevada, which gives it a wide variety of climates, practically all of those existing in the European continent.

 

A privileged region

This wonderful natural enclave provides us with the best conditions for the bee to develop at its maximum potential and offer us, season after season, unique products of high quality and with such a distinctive essence.
