The beekeeper

When we want to add a sweet twist to our dishes we use honey from our pantry. We can choose from acacia, polyfloral, linden and dandelion honeys. They are all produced under the watchful eye of Leszek Wójcik, the beekeeper who takes care of the Water&Wine beehives. His beekeeping adventure started several years ago when his vet friend sparked his interest in bees. He became so fascinated that he set up two beehives in his home garden and step by step started developing his beekeeping knowledge. He read books, browsed through websites, consulted specialists. Gradually, he was also expanding his private apiary, which currently consist of 9 beehives. Honey can be collected only during few months, however beekeeping is an all year round work. In Winter Leszek observes how the bees fly out and how they behave in their natural environment. He also takes care of their well-being – he builds new beehives and repairs the old ones. Working with Water&Wine is an opportunity for him to fulfil his great passion and to work with young people, from whom, he believes, he can also learn a lot.
