My philosophy in beekeeping is to simply love the bees. These tiny, beautiful, and incredibly important insects are amazing. In my beekeeping, I prioritize and emphasize their well being, by following their pace and needs throughout the seasons. I'm their biggest fan, and I'm looking forward to every time I go to the apiary. I am their protector, guardian, and admirer. As well as their eternal student, as they continue to teach me new things.



Bees... and honey...  I remember my first memory of them really well. Wide eyed, I looked up at the centrifuge in the bee room. “It's so huge!”, I thought! 

But looking back at that memory,  I realize that it was me that was small, rather than the centrifuge that was huge. 

I must’ve been about five or six years old when I first joined my father to visit Uncle Lennart, an award-winning beekeeper in Skåne, Southern Sweden. Lennart was outstanding at getting the best honey from the bees. And, as a little girl I thought, "I also want to be a beekeeper when I grow up!".

Hi, I'm Nina.

It’s the craft of beekeeping that is the most exciting aspect for me. The seasonal changes and balance never cease to surprise me. For example, the summer of 2021 started out cold, which gave a slow start to the honeybee colonies, compared to 2018 that showed an extreme explosion of bees due to a super warm April and May.  Or, flowers that normally give nectar in august, can, as this year proved, be fully bloomed in June. This provides me with never-ending new techniques, methods, and procedures to learn. 

Being a beekeeper is a craft that entails knowledge, skills, and expertise in areas such as bees anatomy, plants and nutrients, weather, taste, treatment and food supervision, and labelling. A craft I'm incredibly happy to practice.

Consisting of a flower and insect diversity with 62 registered mowing fields, it is unique in the Nordic countries. Keeping too many honeybees can displace the natural wild bees. Not wanting to disturb any natural balance in nature with my beekeeping, I therefore keep my apiary small. I let my bees work together and in alignment with both nature and insect life, resulting in a unique and local wildflower honey. I am proud of my beekeeping and love the bees. I hope that I can continue to do what I love, and at the same time produce the best honey possible for you!

Practicing beekeeping in an incredibly beautiful and flourishing cultural landscape, it is important to think big, but keep the apiary small.

It is the diverse biological and cultural heritage qualities that made this area be awarded status as Selected cultural landscapes in agriculture. A lot of the traditional small-scale landscape mosaic is still intact, with small mowing fields of great variety.
A rarely large diverse cultural land areas such as unfertilized mowing fields, various traditional pollarding trees and natural grazing is still in use. In addition, there are cultural heritage in the form of traditional log houses, masonry, stone walls, and other traces of pre-industrial agriculture. In 2017 Svartdal, and it's neighboring area of Hjartdal Nordbygd, was included in  Selected cultural landscapes.. 

The village of Svartdal is part of an exclusive national development of valuable cultural landscapes in Norway.
