Once upon a time...
In a very small hive, bees were active all summer producing a special kind of honey. In their natural habitat and behaviour, almost untouched, the bees produced a divine honey, which they left for the beekeepers to discover. To their amazement, the beekeepers found truly pure, natural honey, pure love, PURE CONSCIENCE!
From this divine experience came a dream: to share naturally produced food with others and to change the world's conscience.
Once we found the perfect piece of land for our farm, we were inspired by the great biodiversity that surrounds us, and harmony between plants in nature. Starting with the planting of companion crops, we are gradually implementing biointensive agriculture – a sustainable organic farming method based on working with the basic elements needed for life (soil, water, air and sun) to achieve maximum yields, while increasing biodiversity and soil fertility. We are currently working for our organic certification. The products include all fruits and vegetables, honey, eggs, and safran.
Maintaining healthy soil requires minimizing the use of machinery, which compacts the soil and increases its vulnerability to erosion. In practice this means all of our produce is hand-planted, and hand-harvested with conscience.
Our biointensive farm will use only a fraction of the resources used up in conventional farming to produce the same amount of produce – we believe this is a better way to experience food.

Love is in the Egg...
Eggs from chickens with access to green plants such as clover and grass, and insects look a lot different than eggs from factory-raised chickens that never go outdoors. They are also fed organic certified grains from local sources. A deep orange yok means the eggs is from pasture-raised hens and indicates a well-balanced and healthy chicken diet. Our eggs have excellent nutritional value, are multi-coloured and come from a variety of breeds including:
• Easter Eggers
We offer a wide range of flexible subscription options. Please contact us for details.
*** Please note that our organic eggs' subscriptions is full BUT we are taking names for our waiting list. Email us!
Unfiltered & untreated gold from the bees.
Our special Heart of Gold batch honey and honey comb comes in limited quantities – our hard-working bees are part of our biointensive farming strategy and help pollinate the plants for a good annual harvest, and we, in turn, do our best to help maintain healthy hives.
Extra rich in pollen and other high-energy nutrients, our honey’s taste profile changes from year to year.
Local, natural and exquisitely flavourful!
Garlic has a long history of mythical and medicinal benefits and is said to reduce risks of heart disease, and cancer, lower cholesterol and keep the vampires at bay. We know for a fact that garlic is low in calories, but high in nutrients, containing Manganese, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, selenium and fiber. Our farm uses no herbicides, pesticides or fertilizer so you’re getting the absolute best of the benefits all around. Our garlic is sold in a few appealing formats:
• Marinated garlic (COMING SOON)
Chopped fresh garlic in pure olive oil, ideal for cooking, garlic bread, pasta sauce.
• Garlic flowers
Also known as scapes, they offer the same benefits and flavours but they’re available earlier in the season, and look visually stunning on a plate.
