Hello! It’s nice to see you here

Since you've come to this section, you must want to get acquainted! So, as you already probably figured out, we are real twin brothers and beekeepers. We love people and bees and we adore the products that bees create. Even though we really enjoy beekeeping, lately we’ve been spending more time doing feel-good stuff, making customers happy and telling stories about our bees both online and at our bee farm. After all, it’s so great when more people learn to live in peaceful harmony with bees and understand them.

Similar but very different...

I’m Ignas,

the early bird on our farm, loving packager of deliveries, inventor and, of course, the face of the company. I love doing what we do because not only do I get to be a beekeeper and admire nature, but I also get to bring joy to others. . It really is an indescribable feeling when you get a word of thanks not just for sending a delivery but for all the positive emotion and good vibes you bring to the table. That’s priceless!

And anyway, if someone comes along, I'd be happy to leave the bees for Willis for a week and go to the Dakar rally to "sneak"...

I'm Vilius,

It’s me that usually replies to your calls, comments and messages. And, what's more, becoming a beekeeper has meant learning to be a cameraman, a photographer, a writer, a speaker, and even a bit of an artist... How can you not admire that kind of work!

If you follow us on social media, you should have noticed that I really really like to cook. With or without honey...

And that's where it all started...

We restored my grandfather's old hive and got our first swarm just off the branch... We have always been optimistic ? (Just don’t try this at home.) So in that first year we set up three hives. And the eternal love of bees began...


This is how the number of hives we had grew as the years went by.

By the time we graduated from secondary school, we already had 14 bee families, and we shared the honey they produced with our closest family and friends.

3 ⇒ 7 ⇒ 14

During our student days, we did not expand much, only adding a couple of bee families to our farm. There was a real lack of knowledge...

21 ⇒ 29

To turn his hobby into a serious occupation, Vilius went to... Norway, and on his return he added thirty more colonies to our apiary. We began to grow.

60 ⇒ 80 ⇒ 130

This was followed by several trips to Germany, an internship with beekeepers who use the most advanced beekeeping techniques...

This winter, we have already...

as many as 315 bee families.

Let's not lie, there were moments of joy, mistakes, discoveries and lessons...

‘Our best work is the work we do of our own free will and with a natural inclination’. (Charles de Montesquieu)

The Farm of the Year 2020 award has a very symbolic meaning to us – it is the crown for the results we have produced in our many years of beekeeping and an apt reflection of our painstaking labour, efforts and hearts.
In a competition of national significance, the purpose of which it is to notice those farms that have made the greatest progress in farming development, it is an honour for us to have been recognised ‘for contributions to the development of the country’s beekeeping and for sincere dedication to and love for our work’.
The first stage of the competition took place at the municipal level. Mid-July 2020, the Kupiškis branch of the Lithuanian Farmers’ Union announced the district’s winners.
A year later, on 6 July 2021, the mayor of Kupiškis District awarded us with the mayor’s certificate of gratitude ‘for making the name of the Kupiškis region known by cultivating the traditions of beekeeping and providing meaningful educational activities’. Just a few days later, on 15 July 2021, we received the Farm of the Year 2020 award in the main competition.

We are sincerely grateful to everyone for this recognition and their heartfelt support!

Bear Brothers gummies by Lithuanian brand Brolių Medus awarded with gold medal

GOLD at last! And who would have thought that the Bear Brothers would be such a triumph for our Brolių Medus brand! First brought out into the light of day in May of 2022, these fruit juice and honey gummies instantly became a favourite among enthusiasts of honey. On 7 October of the same year, they earned gold in the food industry product category at the Choose a Lithuanian Product 2022 (Rinkis prekę lietuvišką 2022) awards!

If we’re being honest, my brother and I were a little sceptical about the idea of the Bear Brothers at first. When supermarket shelves are overflowing with every flavour and shape under the sun, it seemed scarcely possible that consumers would be tempted by one more product in the same category. But we decided to go for the risk and we’re already raising our champagne glasses to the health of our Bear Brothers.

The annual fair was hosted by Ekspozicijų Centras, UAB along with the Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists and the Kaunas Regional Association of Industrialists and Employers. At the Choose a Lithuanian Product 2022 fair, products were selected by specialist committees to be recognised with gold medals and diplomas in a competition announced in advance of the event.

The aim of the fair is to showcase products and services made in Lithuania, promote the consumption of Lithuanian products and strengthen cooperation between the country’s manufacturers and the suppliers that provide them with relevant services and equipment. This year, the event was a record-breaking one based on the number of applicants: over 260 brand creators participated in the fair.

Brolių Medus on the gold-winning Bear Brothers!

We invite you to taste:

We are sincerely grateful to everyone for their appreciation and sincere support!
