Meet our Huhí beekeepers
Willy, as he’s known to his friends, owns two apiaries and 30 hives and is passionate about beekeeping and farming in general.
“I come from a family of doctors and we’ve been in the town for a long time. It’s made us appreciate the people of Huhi very much. I’m a veterinarian, so when I was invited to participate in the Nikté Project I was very interested.”
Willy sees the project as an opportunity to bring improvements to the beekeeping community and give his three children the opportunity to learn the value of nature and how to take care of it.
“Beekeeping has enormous potential to generate well paid employment for new generations. Maybe beekeepers can be 100% dedicated to the activity so they can increase their income and help protect our planet and future at the same time".
