Our Story

Anthea’s is a family artisanal business located on the beautiful Greek island of Kea in the Cyclades. All of our products are naturally grown and treated with special care and love towards nature! In our fields, our certified organic Prickly Pears and Almonds are naturally grown, with no insecticides or hormones. Our soils and groundwater have been carefully examined and have been found clean from any chemical substances, thus not contaminating our harvests.

 

Our Raw Thyme Honey comes from the area of Spathi in Kea, where beekeeping was practiced since the ancient times. With respect to the rich ecosystem of the island and nature’s seasons, we monitor our beehives throughout the year. We collect our honey with great responsibility, constantly updating our knowledge around the proper methods of ecological beekeeping, without the use of chemicals or harmful substances. Our honey is collected straight from the extractor, it is totally unheated and unprocessed. In our ISO 22000:2005 certified facilities, it is bottled under the strictest hygiene standards. It is for all these reasons, that we can guarantee of our honey’s excellent quality, its amazing smell of thyme, along with its invaluable therapeutic and nutritional properties, until the last drop in your jar!
