A NOSSA HISTÓRIA

APIMEL Apiary. The founder of the company and his sons. The location of APIMEL’s apiaries ensures the quality of the pastures that are the source of its honey; located in remote areas, far from human activity and free of any pollution.

 

The APIMEL is a family business, founded by Fernando Ventura in 1981. Beekeeping already had a tradition of several generations in the family when in the early 70s its founder, born in Lisbon and while still residing in Estoril, decides to take the first steps towards professionalization. He has deepened his knowledge through various courses and training that included the Complete Beekeeping Course, provided at the time by the Ministry of Agriculture; with a strong practical focus and many ours of field training.

 

The few hives that initially constituted a hobby started multiplying, when finally in 1980, his deep passion for the culture and geography of the mountainous center of the country, coupled with the urge to live a healthier life, away from the city noise, made him move with his family to the interior, establishing almost all his apiaries in the Lousã Mountains, becoming the only professional producer in the region.

 

More then 30 years after its establishment APIMEL remains true to its origin as a family business, in a collaboration that brings together the founder and his two sons, remaining the largest producer of Lousã Mountains Honey, which is the flagship product and brand image of the company. Nevertheless, since its origin, APIMEL has known how to take full advantage of the floral diversify of the region, by maintaining a diversity of crops that represent the main honey varieties of Beiras.
