The third generation of our family lives closely connected to bees. My mother’s father Ivan was a beekeeper, but we set the beginning of Beekeeping Pislak Bali around 1946, when my father, a legendary Slovene beekeeper Janko Pislak bought his first swarm of bees. He was twelve years old at the time and he bought it with the money he got for his confirmation.
Nowadays our beekeeping is run by my husband Robert and me. We have about 2600 beehives, which are placed at various locations: from Pohorje mountain through Dravsko polje, over the Haloze hills to the Croatian border.
