Western Podillia.

Medobory

Medobory - limestone mountains on the border of Khmelnytsky and Ternopil regions, formed from sediments of mollusks, corals and algae. Where did the corals come from in Podillya?

 

In the ancient past, these mountains were a sea reef at the bottom of the warm Sarmatian Sea, which occupied the territory of the modern Podillia Upland.

When the Carpathians were formed, the sea receded, and the reef remained in the form of low mountains…

Today, Medobory, which is part of a large ridge of Podilski Tovtry, is a unique geological formation with only one analogue in the world - the Great Barrier Reef off the east coast of Australia.

The name "Medobory", by which the people named this incredible place, eloquently speaks of the huge number of honey plants in the local forests and picturesque valleys, many of which are endemic, ie those that grow only in this area.

Due to the incredibly rich flora and unique microclimate created by low but steep and rocky mountains, the honey fom here is extremely rich, fresh, has its own well-defined, unique wooded character.

 

The Honey Brothers are represented in the Medobory terroir by beekeeper Serhiy Klepatsky from the village of Sataniv in the Horodok district of the Khmelnytsky region. The apiary where Serhiy works is located 50 meters from the relict Medobory forest and only a few hundred steps from the Satanivsky monastery of St.Trinity of the XVI century

There are a dozen of bee families living in the apiary, which feel great in this place! They have plenty of delicious flower nectar, a wonderful temperate climate and caring hosts. And those who want to discover this wonderful land, travel on ecological trails, visit the ancient monastery, feel the energy of the ancient Slavic village Zvenigorod, breathe the spicy air of beech forests, taste the healing spring water - Honey Brothers and the Klepatsky family cordially invite you to visit this place.
