Commitments to the traditions of our land
We are committed to the Aliste traditions as a structural element that define us, build and generate the collective trust of our village.
General view of the village of Gallegos del Campo.
Agriculture, and especially livestock, has been the traditional way of life of the people of this eminently rural region, where the work of land and livestock saturated its existence. But these people, our parents and ancestors, also cultivated a great number and diversity of customs and traditions that orally passed from parents to children, shaping the history of our people.

We want to foster with these memories the cultural values of our community and participate in the preservation of their traditions and their natural resources, with a clear objective, the simple, healthy and plain desire to contribute as far as possible to create a better tomorrow for this region.
Participating in the traditions of our people.
Precisely we support in the work of the good doing to elaborate our artisan products with the maximum respect to the environment and the sustainability of Aliste.
We like to relate
We are partners of the Spanish Beekeepers Association, whose main objective is to defend and promote the development of bee and beekeeping in Spain.
The Spanish Beekeepers Association is the main meeting point for people and companies interested in beekeeping and one of the great forums for discussion the problems of this sector in our country.
If the social fabric is strengthened the society becomes more prosperous, a fact that becomes more necessary when the risks increase in traditional quality beekeeping (new pests like Asian, tricks on labeling or transhumance without control). In this way, along with other beekeepers of the region we belong to the association of beekeepers of Aliste, APIALIST, with which beekeepers in this region seek collaboration in the establishment of sanitary standards for pest and disease control as well as the De Own services of assistance and technical advice with which they defend the rights and the interests of the alistans beekeepers.
Strength, determination and passion for work well done have been the origin of this adventure, without a doubt, the factors that will do the heart of Las Obreras de Aliste will continue to beating with the same intensity.
Hard and persistent in our commitment and our ideals of service to our earth.
Combining tradition with innovation to obtain a product of the highest quality is the challenge that we propose. You can never underestimate the wisdom of our elders or leave aside the advances that technology offer us.
