About us

Hives in our garden

We are two beekeepers, Ronni and Georges, passionate about our bees, pollination, nature and making high quality honey. 

Nothing make us happier than seeing our bees thrive and contribute to pollination together with feedback from our customers.

We are mostly located on the peninsula Nesodden in the Oslo Fjord, but we also have a few locations outside of this area where we collect specific kinds of honey.

Where we sell our honey

Most of our honey is sold to the Norwegian Honey Co-Op and the local market. For the local market we also produce and sell beeswax candles.

Next to the local market, we are so lucky to have quite a few customers from France and the US. Our international customers prefer the Ling Heather Honey first of all, but also our Autumn Honey is very popular.

We opened our international website, together with Facebook and Instagram accounts, during spring 2022. Until then our international sales took place on eBay and email.

Where our honey originates from

We produce all our honey ourselves. This is the only way we feel comfortable offering a quality product to our customers.

All our honey is harvested from apiaries either in the forest or at the edge of the forest. We do not have any apiaries in the proximity to heavy farmlands. 

The last years we have been producing three different kinds of honey. It is the combination time of year and location that determines the outcome of the honey.

Below you can see a map showing the different areas where our apiaries are located, and also where the different kinds of honey originate from. 

Ling Heather Honey

Towards the end of the Norwegian summer, late July, we move some of our bees into the mountains. This is where we get the special Ling Heather Honey that we offer on this page. 

By moving our bees to the mountains, we can harvest pure ling heather honey. In this area there is nothing else giving nectar at this time of year. The area is remote and far away from pesticides. This way we make sure our bees stay happy and that our honey has the qualities we want it to have.

Please feel free to contact us at any time, either using the contact form or by sending us an email on mail@norwegianbeekeeper.com.
