A unique beekeeping experiment to obtain pure honey.

Beekeeping was started by us in the year 2014 with the intention of obtaining pure and sattvic honey in a completely non-violent manner by breeding bees.  Very few people know that beekeeping is not an exploitation but a nutritional activity, based on the principle of coexistence and not parasitism.  Meaning beneficial not only for humans but also for both humans and bees.  In fact, beekeeping is beneficial to farmers, agriculture and nature.

 What started as a small hobby in the vicinity of nature has taken the form of a business over time and today we have more than 300 bee colonies of our own.  Our area of ​​work is the inland rural area around Kutch, Porbandar, Gir Somnath, Panchmahal, Dahod, and Dang.


 We guarantee you 100% Pure Satvik and Natural (Raw, Unfiltered & Unpasteurized) honey.  Not a single fly, egg or chick is harmed during the honey extraction process.  This honey is not processed in any way and no external substances like preservatives, sugar are added to it.  Honey is delivered to you only by straining it with a cotton cloth.


 A bee colony has a queen bee, 200-300 male bees and 20,000 to 80,000 worker bees.  This family of bees is raised in a scientifically made wooden box.  These boxes are kept in areas full of perennial flowers.  By getting perennial flowers, bees make more honey than they need.  This excess honey is extracted by non-violent method.  Not a single fly, egg or chick is harmed during this honey extraction process.  This honey is not processed in any way.

 Humans have a very old relationship with honey.  Honey was also the first sweet eaten by humans in ancient times ...!  For thousands of years humans have been using brutal methods to obtain honey.  To get honey from a bee hive, honey is obtained by lowering the hive by making a lot of smoke under it.  During this time a large number of bees, eggs, chicks and larvae die.  During the process of lowering the honeycomb, the eggs and chicks are depleted and biological impurities are mixed in the honey and such honey cannot be stored for long.  Many species of bees have become extinct because of this ruthless method of obtaining honey.


 Nutritious and rich in honey, Indians have been using very little.  Honey has no place in the daily diet of Indians, it is only used as a medicine.  There is also a religiosity behind this, as a large number of flies die due to the violent method of extracting honey, so Indians use very little honey.

 Centrifugal machines are also used to obtain honey in beekeeping centers, in which pure and sattvic honey can be obtained without harming a single bee or its eggs and chicks.  In addition, the extra honey produced by the bees is taken as the bees have a system of perennial flowers.  We therefore urge people to prefer pure, sattvic and non-violent honey obtained from beekeeping which promotes beekeeping and stops killing of innocent creatures.

 "If the bees perished from the earth, in just four years, all living things would be gone."

 - Albert Einstein

 Such a statement by a great scientist may seem a little ridiculous and questionable, but today the effect of this statement is slowly being seen.  After World War II, the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and hybrid seeds (GM seeds) began to increase in agriculture.  In the early stages these things prove to be slightly beneficial.  But gradually the situation began to worsen.  Excessive use of chemical fertilizers led to desolation of fertile and quality lands, excessive use of pesticides also destroyed useful insects like bees.  The food chain that has been running for thousands of years has been destroyed.

 Even after spending billions of rupees on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, according to multinational companies, global agricultural production is declining.  Its side effects are not limited to the environment;  Its side effects are also beginning to occur on human health.  The basic cause of serious diseases like diabetes, cancer is the change in our diet. Small looking bees have a high place in our diet.  In search of food, bees move from one flower to another.  During this time, unwanted pollen is also transferred from one flower to another (pollination).  Due to which fruits are produced on the flowers.  In more than 80% of plants, bees produce flowering stage to fruiting stage.  Using pesticides we destroyed useful insects like bees.  As a result, fruits and seeds are not produced properly despite being healthy and green plants.

 If pollen carriers like bees are destroyed, seeds or fruits will not be produced which will break the food chain. We use pesticides to hit the ax on our own feet.

 The use of pesticides is controlled by the government in almost all countries except India.  The government has no control over the use of pesticides in our country, so these toxic pesticides are used indiscriminately in crops.  There has been a lot of agitation in developed countries and the government has to listen to the people.  The use of pesticides has been banned worldwide for years.  It is licensed by the Government of India as there is no one to speak to.  Why should the government oppose a company that pays crores of rupees in taxes to the government?  We have to take the initiative to protest.

 To what extent is it appropriate to take bee honey?

 The life of bees depends entirely on flowers.  The only source of its food is flowers.  During the year, during the spring and rainy seasons when the flowers are in full bloom, bees collect nectar from the flowers to make honey.  This honey is used as food when there is a lack of flowers.  As I read this, another question arises in my mind, is it appropriate to take honey?

 In beekeeping, arrangements are made for the bees to get perennial flowers.  The constant flowering of bees makes the bees produce more honey than they need.  This extra honey is removed with the help of a modern machine without harming the flies.  Thus honey obtained not only from the absorption of bees but also from nutrition has 100% purity and also 100% sattvicism.

 Frozen honey is mixed honey?

 There is a belief in Indian society that frozen honey is adulterated honey. But this belief is wrong.  Most people have misconceptions about frozen honey.  For this reason, chemically processed honey or heated honey is sold more in India than raw honey.  Which does not usually occur.  Heating honey once destroys its germination properties, but at the same time destroys the medicinal properties of honey.  The reality is that antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, many anti-aging properties, acids, etc. are destroyed at temperatures above just 45 ° C.  This medicinal element provides health to the body and gives strength to fight diseases.  That is why honey should be kept away from heat.  Most companies sell honey processed or pasteurized, the quality of such honey being exactly like sugar syrup.  That is why most Ayurveda doctors recommend the use of "raw honey".

 Queen bee

 Some of the characteristics of the queen bee are shown here.

 There are thousands of bees in the hive but there is only one queen bee. The queen bee and the worker bee are born from the same type of egg, but are much larger than the queen bee and the worker bee.  This difference in appearance is due to the amount of royal jelly given to them during their development.  The queen bee does not use honey and pollen as food, but has a special diet called royal jelly.  Royal jelly is a secretion from the worker bee's brain gland that is rich in protein.  When the queen bee flies out into the air for the first time four days after hatching, a strong odor called pheromone attracts the male bees behind it.  Males mate with bees while flying in the air.  The male bee dies after mating.  This is how many males mate in a single day, until their uterus is completely filled.  The queen bee never needs to have sex for the rest of her life.  Using these seeds throughout her life, the queen lays eggs according to her needs.  The queen bee can lay more or less eggs, depending on the favorable and unfavorable environment.  The queen bee decides whether to lay male eggs or female eggs according to time and need.  The lifespan of a queen bee is 3 years and that of a worker bee is only 3 months.  This is also due to the special food it gets. The queen has mating only once in her life and then lays eggs throughout her life. The queen bee can lay eggs only, not the worker bee.  , Thousands of worker bees (underdeveloped females) that can never mate and are fully developed females i.e. queen bees.

 The queen bee can lay 1500 to 2000 eggs in the flowering season.  The working bees feed and feed her. The queen bee spends her entire life as a "queen", but when the queen is unable to give birth, her children, the working bees, kill her and make her a new queen.

 The work done by a bee to prepare a teaspoon of honey

 A bee can produce as much as one-twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its entire life.  He does it not only for himself but for generations to come.  You may know that the life span of a bee is only 45 to 60 days.  The sole purpose of his life is to manage (store) food for his family and protect them.

 The bee has to collect the juice of more than fifteen flowers to make a drop of honey.

 There are millions of bees in the hive.  The journey made by all the bees to make one kg of honey is more than 42000 km.  This distance is equal to 3 revolutions around the earth.

 Our business is bee keeping.  It may sound a little strange to hear this, that if this is what happens, how can a bee be reared?

 The answer is simple, just as cows get buffaloes to get milk, we get bees to get honey.  Speaking of Mandi, the desire to do something different and the activity started just to learn something out of curiosity turned from a hobby and a hobby to a business.

 What started in 2014 with just 25 hives of bees has today become a beekeeping center with 300 hives.  Darshan Beekeeping Farm today is able to provide you with pure, organic honey.

 When beekeeping was decided to become a business, the only goal was not to compromise on the quality and purity of honey under any circumstances, only 100% pure, organic honey would be provided to the customer.  Due to our quality standards, honey production is 40% less than capacity, which limits our annual production capacity to 2500 kg, but because of these strict standards, our customers trust us for quality honey.

 The longer the honey stays in the hive, the better the taste and quality of the honey.  Because of this we are able to extract honey only 3 to 4 times a month but only 2 times a month.  So that the honey stays in the hive for 15 days and matures.

 As a consumer, it is important to know a little bit about the honey you consume for good health.  So that you can understand the difference between honey sold in the market and honey produced by us.

 Honey is a natural food, prepared by bees.  The color, taste, density, sodium of the honey that you find in the area depends on the climate there, due to which it is not possible to get honey with uniform taste, color and sodium for many months.  The taste of all the mangoes of the same mango is also a little different, then there are thousands of different types of flowers.  It is not possible to expect the taste of honey produced by bees to be the same, but when you go to the market to buy honey, you will see honey with similar taste and color in attractive packaging from different companies.  It is not possible to get a uniform color, flavored honey on such a large scale.  If you look around you will see that beehives are not found in large numbers anywhere.  If one wants pure honey, one cannot get pure honey even if one pays for it.  How can a private company give you honey at a cheap price with a one-on-one free parental lure offer.

 In today's age of adulteration, when every food item is found to be adulterated on a small scale, we guarantee you 100% pure, organic honey.

 The bee hive is moved to a place where more flowers are available so that the bees can get flowers for many months.  By transplanting we get various natural flavors from flowers like anise, ajmo, sesame, eucalyptus, acacia and pure honey with natural properties of those flowers.
