Jerez de la FronteraVer mapa
Sweet, mild, aromatic, wonderful with pine nuts or walnuts, made from rosemary tree, strawberries... and highly nutritious. We're talking about honey from Rancho Cortesano in Jerez, where they've been keeping honey bees for 30 years and where there's an extremely sweet Museum open to the public. The Museum is aimed at adults and children of all ages, who will have a great time watching how the bees work and dressing up as beekeepers.
Rancho Cortesano has around 2,000 hives spread across the province of Cádiz, especially in the Grazalema and Alcornocales nature parks. They normally produce between 30,000 and 40,000 kilos of honey per year.
The Museum offers a wide variety of products to try and buy, including jars of Thousand Flower honey, Holm Oak honey, Eucalyptus honey, Orange Blossom honey, honey confectionery, "meloja" (made from honey yeasts), pollen, royal jelly and honey soaps.
The Museum displays illustrate the vital role bees play in pollination and in the production of fruit and seeds. In fact, Rancho Cortesano also has an organic orchard with a huge variety of fruit trees, namely mangos, custard-apple, pears, apples, almonds, oranges and olives.
Rancho Cortesano makes its own organic honey, bearing the Nature Park quality mark awarded by the Government of Andalucía Department of the Environment and its products are sold in gourmet stores in Spain and Germany.
