1. THE HONEY FARM AND THE BEES
Who we are ? How do bees live in the colony, and how do they make honey?
2. HARVESTING HONEY
How is it possible that honeys have different aromas and flavours? It all starts with the flowers around the beehives. To look for other flowers, you have to move the beehives to other areas or regions. This is transhumance.
3. THE EXTRACTION OF HONEY
You are finally in the heart of the honey farm. This is where the honey is extracted from the honeycombs in a few steps: the frames are uncapped, they are placed in the extractor, and the honey is filtered before being placed in the settling tanks.
4. The bottling and honey textures
But why is honey sometimes liquidy, creamy, grainy or even hard? Why is our lavender honey so creamy? The answer is found in the last room of the honey farm!
