The lucky bees in this apiary only have to fly a few meters to savour the nectars from the orchards and vines that belong to the "Agrilogie" school on the Marcelin site.
Like many of their colleagues in the French-speaking region of Switzerland, the beekeepers at this apiary carry out two seasonal harvests: in spring for flower honey and in summer for tree honey.
It is impossible to estimate the number of bees that inhabit the ten hives in the site, but there are an average of 40,000 bees per hive – more than enough for a "big buzz"!
Bees are sweet little creatures, but even so – take care as you approach the hives! The apiarists are present on the site on the evening of the first Wednesday in every month, when they will be happy to share information about their passion with you.
