Honey's Thun is much more than just a farm. It is a futuristic project that, through honey, expresses a very precise poetics and philosophy, which wants to propose a new idea of food, connected with ethical, environmental, social, and quality of life values.
Andrea Paternoster nherits much more from his grandfather than simply his name and surname. He also inherits his infinite love for honey and beekeeping. To this, over the years he has added enthusiasm, passion and innovation that have pushed him towards the goal of having honey recognised as a noble food. His work requires continuous research, an incessant probing of the thousand territories to which honey can lead. And this starts with nomadism. . Mieli Thun is in fact a nomadic beekeeping business which, respecting the life cycle of bees, moves its hives to at least sixty different locations every year, all of which are Italian. The aim is to find the best floral expression for each plant: each flower develops better in certain territories and periods, depending on climatic and geological conditions, and Mieli Thun has the task of positioning the bees precisely where, at that moment, there is the most delicious nectar. The result is a monofloral honey that releases pure aroma.A passionate experimenter and incurable curiosity seeker, Andrea Paternoster has gone so far as to think up a manifesto for futurist honeys, to write heartfelt and beautiful words to welcome the taster, and even to create a myelicromy , table where everyone, for each type of honey, can learn more about its history, curiosities, organoleptic notes, ideas and uses in the kitchen, botanical information and much more. In short, Mieli Thun has created a real identity card for each honey, proving the deep passion and rigorous knowledge that animates this dynamic and innovative company.
