Although apiculture was known in Cyprus since ancient times, as Virgil says "The Gods of antiquity were fed with the honey of the wonderful bees of the Cypriot Olympus" it remained stagnant for many centuries.

In Cyprus we have an excellent kind of bee called the "Cyprian bee" especially characterized for its great production of honey, its activity and ability to resist dry and hot weather conditions.
