From ancient times until today Astypalea produces high quality honey. During the last years one can find Astypalea honey all around Greece and Europe.
Local beekeepers during the winter, especially on days prevailing bad weather feed their colonies themselves.
The bees are fed with wild herbs especially theme and oregano and wildflowers which grow all around the island and due to this the aromas which the Astypalea honey produces are unique.
You can buy honey directly from producers or shops selling local products.
