The first island in the Azores to be discovered in the 15th century was the island of Santa Maria. Here, on this small island of just over 5,000 residents, one of the best orchards exists in all of the Azores. Here, like all 9 islands in the Azores, the agriculture sector is crucial.
The wide variety of tropical fruits and flowers that grow here are awe-inspiring. One of the reasons why bees love the Azores is the abundance of flowers for pollinating. The beehives on the island of Santa Maria have been family owned and operated for 3 generations.
The impressive, all-natural honey from Santa Maria is one of the best kinds of honey you will ever taste. The story of its unique origin and method of production are included on the label and make an excellent gift for the honey connoisseur.
