Initially, the new bee site in Eschenburg consisted of a planned meadow. In 2022, PORR began to manage the property. Wild fruit trees were planted. In 2023, the time had finally come: two beehives moved into their new home. 40,000-80,000 bees per hive are at home at the site in summer. The industrious animals seem to have arrived well and spent a good first summer: 20 kg of honey were harvested in July. The honey is sold internally and the proceeds go to a charitable cause.
A second PORR bee site in Germany is located at the PES branch in Herzfelde near Berlin. Here, too, our bees feel right at home. In order to pass on the knowledge about bees and their importance to the coming generations, the bee site recently received a visit from a local kindergarten. The curious children watched the beekeeping activities from a safe distance and learned where the honey comes from.
