"Musikhin. Mir Meda" Company began its activity in 2000. Its founder Denis Musikhin had worked at a collective farm apiary for several years where he developed a genuine passion for honey business. However, he soon realized that it was very difficult to reach his potential within the limits of the collective farm. It was then that the young man decided to start his own business.
First beehives in the village of Dobrinka in the Orenburg Region were created in the end of the 1990s. In a couple of years, thanks to the hard work of the Musikhins the first batch of honey produce was sold out in Orenburg and Bashkiria. It was only a start of the history of "Musikhin. Mir meda" Company.
To expand the business it was decided to sell packaged and loose honey independently in order to guarantee its high quality and affordable price. In the course of time, it became clear that it was necessary to expand the product range for further business growth and development. This was implemented with the help of partner-beekeepers not only from the Orenburg Region, but also from the other regions of the country - Tatarstan, Belgorod and Kursk Regions, Kirghizia, Kazakhstan, Krasnodar Region, Altai and Bashkiria.
The Republic of Bashkortostan
The unique nature of Bashkiria, variety of flowering honey plants (over 300 species), lime-tree and other woods make honey of this region extra special. It has a deep intense colour, delectable flavour and the ability to improve health while preventing a lot of diseases. "Musikhin. Mir Meda" Company cooperates with apiaries located even in remote and protected areas of the republic. From this region we procure delicious and wholesome honey of the "Bashlipa" variety.
The Republic of Tatarstan
In Tatarstan, people have come to appreciate honey since the ancient times. Even the national drink – chak-chak is flavored with honey. This is not surprising – this region is rich in both vast fields and giant woods. There are flowering meadows, pine woods and protected forests here. Different honey varieties are produced in Tatarstan, any of which you may order from "Musikhin. Mir Meda" Company.
The Altai Region is one of the few Russian regions where the environment is unharmed by human activity. There are no mineral resources here. Therefore, there are no factories or mines. Mild climate contributes to the growth of flowering honey herbs and trees. The preserved principle of natural economy makes beekeeping a rather popular activity. The most sought after varieties of the Altai honey are "Kedroviy dar" (cedar gift) and "Tayezhniy bouquet" (taiga bouquet).
A large number of high-quality honey suppliers are in the Krasnodar Region. This southern region enjoys a very mild climate, therefore gardens and meadows there are in bloom from early spring till late autumn. The proximity of the Black sea and the Sea of Azov also has a favourable influence on flora.
The Republic of Adygea
The Republic of Adygea is a Russian region listed as the World Heritage Site. There is everything necessary for the growth of different honey herbs and trees – mild climate, fertile soil and high humidity. It is not surprising that we get the most exotic varieties of honey, such as "Acacia" and "Kashtan" (chestnut) particularly from Adygea.
Belgorod Region is famous for its temperate climate with cool summer and warm winter, fertile soils and regular precipitation throughout the year. These conditions are more than just favourable for the growth of pine and relict chalk forests, mixed oak woods and rare honey herbs and flowers. With such diversity of vegetation it is not surprising that the demand for Belgorod honey is growing steadily.
The native land of our company "Musikhin. Mir Meda" is located in several natural zones – plains and forests, mountains and moors. Natural areas for honey production occupy over 600 thousand ha of the region. Honey-bees reap their "harvest" from coriander and clover, lime-tree and black locust, raspberry and willow, as well as from other plants. Classical varieties of the Orenburg honey are honey with sweet-clover, with buckwheat and with sunflower.
