Paolo Pescia, a passionate second-generation honey maker, practices “nomadic” beekeeping. He transports his beehives to seasonally-flowering zones and protected national parks located from the coast of Tuscany to its hills. He uses this practice to produce monofloral honeys of stunning quality and flavor. All production is done by hand, including the scraping of the honey from their combs.
Cardoons are thistles and related to artichokes. Cardoon blossom honey is rare gem, produced in very limited quanties and very hard to find in the U.S. Delicate, aromatic, floral, and sweet.
