Honey has been coveted by humans since ancient times. Our ancestors sensed that within its purity lay the vibrant forces of nature. This divine nectar nourishes, delights, and protects humans as well.
With a wild nature and a distinct character, each of our honeys have a story. We disregard the conveniences of modern beekeeping to ensure that story is properly expressed in their taste and use. Everything is done to ensure that you benefit from exceptional, pure, organic honeys, exclusively European in origin.
Every honey is unique! Honey harvests depend on the nectar production of flowers, which is influenced by climatic conditions and the blossoming period. If it’s too wet or too hot, there may be no nectar for bees to gather. More extreme weather conditions can even destroy the flowers... And when one variety becomes available, another may become scarce as we do not exploit our bee colonies, unlike producers that guarantee constant supply by unethical means. Our quantities are limited, and their availability depends on the season!
Bees in good health and ideal environments will produce more honey than they need. This surplus is how we ensure a harvest without harming the colony. Harvesting, extraction, and filtration techniques influence the quality and properties of honey. The enzymatic richness, simple sugars, vitamins, and organic acids in honey are compromised by heat and light.
To preserve its exceptional taste and nutritional qualities, each honey must be harvested at the right moment, according to solar cycles, and by respecting the bees' moods. It should never be exposed to chemical treatment or heated beyond 35 °C, the natural temperature of the beehive.
Honey can be dynamized, which increases its richness in active principles, enhances its energetic vitality, and its vibrational information. If the beehives are surrounded by flowers that grow with chemical fertilizers in weakened soil or fed with sugar because all their honey has been "stolen", the honey will be poor in nutrients and active ingredients. Honey should be consumed within three years of harvest for the most important enzymatic quality. Its antibacterial and medicinal effects gradually diminish after two years, especially if it is exposed to light and heat. Crystallization is a normal phenomenon, but it occurs more often in certain honeys.
Honey from the Pyrenean mountain valleys and foothills. Being proud of where we are from, each honey indicates the French department ("Hautes-Pyrénées") or the Spanish province ("Catalogne" or "Navarre").
These are "energetically sensitive" honeys, subtle, the quintessence of "connected" honeys, derived from our own polarized, locally-made wooden hives. These hives are designed according to the principle of polarity, resembling small cathedrals that respect the natural growth fields of the tree.
Rare honeys, unique wild honeys, obtained from endemic flowers (strawberry tree, rhododendron, raspberry, wild thyme, etc.) in highly biodiverse micro-terroirs. Their selling price is determined by their rarity and the difficulty of production. A small map on each jar shows a circle of 800 km around our location for an idea of where our partner-beekeepers are situated.
Noble honey obtained from "wild gathering" by bees during their harvests. In abundant years, the harvest of these honeys allows us to offer it in packaging of 480 g and 3 kg. It offers an excellent value for money, being healthy, authentic, and big enough for the whole family to enjoy without moderation. Organic Family Honey is affordable Ballot-Flurin quality for everyone!
