Few people know that Spain makes and exports more honey than any other EU country, accounting for a whopping 20% of European production from some 2.5 million hives. While that quantity is impressive, it’s the quality of Spanish honey that maintains the export demand. Spain’s diversity is behind the large variety of plants, whose pollen provides an important source of proteins, fats, minerals and vitamins, all crucial to the health of young bees. This variety also makes for richer, more aromatic honey.
Those features are underscored by the dense, concentrated nature of Spanish honey, coming from its lower moisture content. This is due much in part to Spain’s hot, dry climate, according to Pedro Pajeulo, the owner.
At first, the honey came just from villages around Badajoz, but father and son would expand the selection to over a dozen different types from across the country.
