Even as a little boy, he used to accompany his uncle to the beekeepers, but it was only in 2009, that Michael Bauer decided to professionalise his affinity for bees and honey in the Old Country (Alten Land) and to found the “Altländer Honig Manufaktur” (Altländer Honey Manufactory) near Hamburg together with his wife. All his creations are organically certified.
Michael Bauer and his bees travel far throughout the beautiful North German landscape to produce a wide range of variations of the sweet gold. Thus his bees collect nectar on the German Baltic island of Fehmarn, where they produce wonderfully spreadable delicate canola honey; in Brandenburg, where they manufacture rare cornflower honey at edges of the woods; or in the Lüneburg Heath, where they harvest the typically spicy heather honey. In the summer, the beehives are placed on hotel rooftops in Hamburg and there compose their popular Hamburg summer honey.
Altländer Honig and its creations Habanero-Chilli, Chai-Spice and Cacao & Mint are all organically certified.
