Who we are

Mieles Don Ferro® is a family owned business. It all started with one hive in 2000. Our main objective is to commercialize honey from Meliponas bees in a responsible way. Our honey is produced following non-invasive principles towards bees and their environment. It is a high quality, 100% natural product. The beehives are located in an area surrounded by mountains where wildflowers abound.
