He has been in the business 30 years and is yet completely humble, kind, and personable. We got to see the bees, honey, pollen, wax, and little larvae in the hive, and even try some raw honey right out of the hive! Andonis also happily snapped some photos of us in the bee garden.

- Sarah SIt was an amazing experience with Antonis whom we had the pleasure to meet with and chat to about bees and life.
