    The Rucher du Montcalm has been in existence for over 30 years. Sylvie Humbert ("Maya" to regulars) is the driving force behind the project, soon to be joined by her daughter.

    The apiaries are located in an exceptional natural setting: the Val-de-Sos and Auzat valleys offer these little bees an ecosystem devoid of pesticides and other phytosanitary products that can harm their equilibrium.

    "Maya" and her daughter transhumance the hives according to the desired honeyflow, often placing them around groves of high-mountain flowers such as Rhododendron and Heather.

    The different varieties of honey come 100% from wild flowers found in the Ariège mountains, at altitudes ranging from 700 to 1800 meters.

    Mother Nature orchestrates the harvests and varieties of honey. The result is a whole new range of tastes, many of which have won medals in various competitions.
    Medal-winning honeys at the Paris Agricultural Show and regional competitions.

    Experience the true passion of beekeeping in the store or during guided tours.
