Describing the history of honey is without a doubt not that easy. As a matter of fact, honey was born with bees, and the merit of man only lies in the discovery of its particular features. During the centuries the techniques to make the most of its exploitation have been improved. Aristotele in the 4th century B.C. already described the techniques of the breeding of bees, the tireless "workers" which transform the nectar transported by the worker bees in honey through a progressive reduction of its content in water and at the same time including some substances they produce.
Current production area in the Park
All the Towns of the Park.
The honey mainly consists of simple sugars, vitamins, enzyms, and mineral salts. It can have many colours and tastes. As a matter of fact, these two important aspects, "the visual and the organoleptic" ones, are indissolubly linked to the flowers they are produced with and to the weather of the place where the bees produced the honey. Also its state can be different: liquid, creamy, or crystalline, an aspect linked to its floral and geographical origins.
The season of the product
The honey is a product which can be found in the Towns of the Park during the whole year.
