VIDEO: Edward Sinanyan: The Famous Apiarist from Syunik (

( Edward Sinanyan, a resident of the Syunik village of Karahoundj, has been a beekeeper since the age of sixteen.

He only had three beehives when he started and now tends 130.

During the past few years Edward has begun to domesticate wild bee populations by bringing them home, as it were.

The 37 year-old beekeeper also harvests wild honey from the cliff side as seen in the video. He says that wild honey fetches three times the price of regular honey.

Everyone in the area knows Edward and many buy honey from him.
