Besniku has been involved in beekeeping for 36 years.
“I have made every effort to increase the number of beehives. We work with honesty and cleanliness because we make a living from this work”.
He has also taught his son, Arbri, the profession, and Arbri is dedicated to this sector as well.
“My son has been involved for a year and a half now.”
Both father and son have managed to establish their own bee park with around 90 beehives. They have received support from the Albanian Rural and Agricultural Development Agency (ARDA) through the National Scheme Program, specifically Measure 2 for beekeeping development.
“I am also working towards certification. I aim to market the honey products properly, even in the European Union.”
The family from Koplik aims to increase the number of beehives to 300.
