The world of bees, honey and nature has always been in the DNA of the family that transformed beekeeping in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The Lacovanelli family deserves much of the credit for the transformation of beekeeping, honey producing and selling into main activities in the territory of Tornareccio, nowadays “the capital of honey in the Abruzzo region”. The ancestor Mr. Giuseppeantonio, realized that increasing the production and sale of the "nectar of the gods" would help maintain his family. Like any good father of a family, in 1896 he decided to buy some hives in the nearby village of Villa Santa Maria. Maybe he did not know but this choice initiated a tradition that continues up to the present day.
For over 150 years the members of the family have kept bees and today they harvest honey from the best blooms of the Italian peninsula and from selected organic crops, through a nomadic beekeeping able of handling 1,600 hives.
