​I am Mahdi Akhavan Moghaddam

​MSc of Bee Breeding

It was mid-2006 when I bought a few hives, I fell in love with them, and I got into beekeeping! I gave up my studies in electrical engineering, clung to agriculture, and now I have a master's degree in bee breeding from the University of Tehran. Bees have been my best teachers since time immemorial.
My policy is to create and maintain a stable job called "beekeeping", and when asked if I am satisfied with beekeeping, I always say yes it is, both my passion and a source of income; a dream come true!

This period of my education was important because I was able to change my field of study from electronics to agriculture. Therefore, I owe my success to the strange and difficult decision I made at that time, which got me where I am today.

Engineering of Plant Production
Islamic Azad University (KIAU)

I was not made for this field. But for me, this period was perhaps an accelerator and a launching pad for today's success.
