Our History

Our story begins around 1950, in a small village of Crete, the heroic Damasta. The village had begun to be rebuilt and grandfather Grigoris Marousis was looking for ways to support his nine-member family.
Hunting, sheep, orchards, bees. Love and respect for this precious insect developed within the family. In the years that followed, all 7 children of the grandfather will deal with the bee.
In romantic and innocent times, nomads in Zakros, Sfakia, Koudoumas, all over Crete. Sleeping under the pines and in the morning bees. A different life, a different world.

With the essence of 70 years of experience and above all with the generosity of the blessed Cretan land, we bring to your table a quality and pure product with the taste of another era.

Crete & honey

Crete has many myths and testimonies that prove the importance of beekeeping on the island. Crete has many myths and testimonies that prove the importance of beekeeping on the island. Zeus was transported to the sacred cave Ideo Andro, on Mount Idi and his nymph Melissa was entrusted with his food. Melissa was the daughter of the king of Crete Melissa and she is the one who taught people beekeeping.

Beekeeping developed very early in Crete, as evidenced by the clay hives of the Minoan era (3400 BC), which were found in excavations in Phaistos and Knossos. The island has been covered with aromatic plants since ancient times. The produced Cretan honey, which was very famous, was first exported to Alexandria, Egypt and a little later to Tripoli, Venice, Constantinople and almost all the corners of the Venetian and Ottoman Empires.
