CURIOSITY: The name CERAPIS was born to pay homage to the Goddess Ceres, mother of the earth and fertility and our bees who every year collect pollen from our olive groves, a fundamental ingredient for the development of the brood inside the hive. Olive groves do not need bees for pollination, in fact olive trees are plants that exploit the wind to fertilize their flowers, but from analyzes carried out every year, we always find a large quantity of olive pollen in our honey. Bees are greedy for olive pollen.
