The Bee’s Knees

Honey is one of the great quality products of Mallorca, together with local wines, olive oils or cheeses from the island.

One estimates that there are some 500 beekeepers on the island, taking care of some 10,000 to 15,000 beehives. Between them they produce approximately 150,000 kg of delicious Mallorcan honey every year, give or take some sporadic variations. The best Mallorcan honey varieties, taste wise, are in my opinion Mel de Taronger (orange blossom honey), Mel de Algarrover (carob flower honey) and Mel de Milflors (wild flower honey). Of course, you are entitled to a differing preference.

Let me remind you that a special honey market will be held in Llubí next Sunday, November 23rd. The IX Fíra de la Mel is a great market around the world of beekeeping and honey making. Apiculturists from Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza are expected to participate in this annual gathering.
