In the midst of Slovenian hills and valleys, surrounded by unspoiled nature, lively and playful sweet springs originate. This quiet place is the home of organic beekeeping MEDENI STUDENEC, and organic queen bee breeding farm MS CARNICA QUEENS, working in close cooperation with Hrastelj Apiaries.

A Brief History

MEDENI STUDENEC (translated as Honey Spring) is an organic beekeeping and organic queen bee breeding farm. A small family beekeeping business started in 2009, and shifted to organic beekeeping in 2013. The company is run by Metelko spouses, both graduates of the Biotechnical Faculty on the University of Ljubljana in the field of beekeeping. Since 2014 we have been working in close cooperation with Hrastelj Apiaries, run by Marko Hrastelj, MSc.
