Ferdi’s Imkerei – Bee regional

The diligent bees of Ferdi’s Beekeeping are at home in the mountains of Tyrol: they move up to 2,000 metres above sea level. On one hand, they collect valuable ingredients from rare plants on the mountain and alpine meadows. And on the other hand, they promote the biodiversity of our nature. The young beekeeper Ferdi processes these with a lot of heart and soul into real natural products.
