Apiary Grünwald

In the valley head of Hinterglemm, beekeeper Josef Grünwald has been living in harmony with nature for years together with his family. With an attentive eye for what is valuable and enduring, Josef is passionate about raising and maintaining his bee colonies. If you join him on his journeys between the different locations of his productive colonies, he has a lot to tell you about the gentle and good-natured “Carnica” species and his experiences as a beekeeper. Always at his side is wife Maria, who helps Josef with a great sense of intuition and passion in the perfecting of the various bee products, bringing her very own values to completion. “There is something meditative about working with the bees, it is immensely relaxing and causes no stress whatsoever,” say Josef and Maria Grünwald about their shared passion for beekeeping – and this is precisely the essence that has been passed on to the next two generations.

Organic beekeeping in the third generation. Finest organic natural honey & valuable bee products.

In the meantime, son Franz and grandson Manuel actively support beekeeper Josef in the biological beekeeping and gain their own personal experience in looking after the colonies and refining the bee products. Grateful for what is already there and open to what may yet become, the two spend a lot of time with Josef in the apiary. While Manuel looks over his grandfather’s shoulder with curiosity, Franz can be found every Monday in summer at the Gasslfest in Hinterglemm, where you can taste and buy the products of the organic beekeeping.

Love, value creation and sustainability go hand in hand for the Grünwalds and thus ensure the best quality. Knowing that they are making a meaningful contribution to the environment and to future generations, working with the bees becomes a matter of the heart with real added value.
