Władysław Atroszko (see photo), the oldest out of six siblings has created the little apiary in the village Komarowo near Vilnius (today part of Belarus). His apiary contained just 3 beehives.

When the II World War began, Władysław got call-up to the army. He served in the XXIII Regiment of the Polish Cavalry in Grodno.

Due the warfare his apiary became destroyed.

2016 - real honey

Nowadays in Gozdowice there is one big apiary farm left. It is composed of the beehives from former three family farms. It remains the tradition and it keps the highest quality of products in combination with new technologies.

Jacek Atroszko, youngest son of Marek and grandson of Stanisław runs the farm at the third generation.

Thanks to that we still may taste the real honey, from this area, without any additions - same as in times of our grandfathers.
