Apiculture in Viana do Bolo


It is an initiative of self-employment in the apiculture sector, which takes advantage of the family home to settle in Viana do Bolo after going through Vigo, where he worked linked to the industry. "They tell you that there is no future and you leave because of inertia."

It's a family initiative, both members of the couple come from nearby places, in the east of the province of Ourense. Looking for an alternative to live in the countryside, they found by chance the apiculture and the were trained in Vigo, before returning to Viana.

They sell 99% of honey in bulk and they achieved better living conditions than they had in the city. Instead, they think that they have access to all services, but with worse quality than the city services.
