Lithuanian raw honey. Unprocessed. From Baltic marshes, forest and wild meadows. Exceptional.

Swamp bee apiary (Lithuanian: Pelkių bitės) is located in the outskirts of Didžiokai village, Molėtai district, Lithuania. Apiary is surrounded by marshes, wild meadows and forest, distant from areas with extensive farming and monoculture cultivation. As a result, the surrounding nature provides bees with extremely rich botanical variety forage for nectar and pollen, which is then processed, by the bees, into the genuine wildflower honey. Amber to red amber in color, unforgettable aroma and taste. We treat bees with dignity. Avoid any synthetic chemicals or plastic beehives. Hives are spaced widely apart to provide bees with a natural habitat environment and we also raise locally adapted queens. We focus on quality instead of quantity. In the end what matters is that we can offer truly genuine wildflower honey. Different with every harvest, every year. Naturally. Raw. Unique.

Home: Welcome


Depending on the weather and phenological characteristics of the season, we distinguish three main types of wildflower honey. Early summer honey, midsummer honey and late summer honey. Linden honey could be seen as a special case of midsummer honey if the linden tree nectar flow is strong.


Dominated by goat willows, maple trees, dandelions and fruit trees such as apples, pears and plums. Wild meadows add veronica and water aven. Light amber in color. Light in taste. Typically harvested at the end of May, early June.


Pleasant aroma, a slight spicy note in taste and amber in color. Honey rich in vitamin C, which makes it your excellent companion in fighting cold. Rich in flavonoids, calms migraine and stomach pain. One of the best.


Midsummer honey is collected from a wide variety of blossoms such as raspberry, linden tree, oak tree, wild oregano, St. John's wort, chicory, cow parsley, meadow clover, wild mustard, phacelia, sweet clover, meadowsweet, sainfoin, ground elder and others. This type of honey is harvested in July. It also already contains some honeydew from the forest and thus is slow to crystallize (typically months). Lovely intense, ripe flavor. My favourite.


Late summer honey is dominated by the forest honeydew and the herbs of the wetlands. Signature dark red in color and intense specific honey dew aroma and flavor. This type has the highest bioactivity of all honey types and thus presumably provides the most as a healthy food supplement. Contains honeydew and nectar from oregano, thistle, thyme, fireweed, common agrimony, purple loosestrife, heather and occasionally buckwheat. Very slow to crystallize.
