The apiarian tradition in Kurpie Białe and Kurpie Zielone date back to the beginning of the 15th century. Numerous remarks on Kurpie honey are well-documented in history: from beekeeping regalities from 1401, through changes advocated by Kurpie of the customary law into beekeeping law of 1559 to the contemporary times. Thanks to rich apiarian traditions in the Kurpie region as well as the renown of the Kurpie honey, beekeeping has created and promoted the image of the region until present. Kurpiowsko-Mazowiecki Związek Pszczelarzy (Kurpie and Mazovia Beekeepers’ Association) in Ostrołęka associates people with passion who have long been cultivating apiarian traditions in the Kurpie region. At present, the Association has 200 member beekeepers.
