About us

Having followed the beekeeping tradition of his family since 1920, Manolis Stefanakis established the apiary “Meligyris” which engages in the production of rare types of honey from wild herbs of the Cretan land.

Manolis’ scientific background, as a graduate from the Agricultural University of Athens as well as his longtime involvement in the family business, led him to associate the microclimate in different geographical areas (according to altitude, relative humidity and soil composition) with the organoleptic & biochemical characteristics of the produced honey.
