Ballot-Flurin's commitments

RARE & COMMUNITY ORIENTED

- Honey harvested and produced in small quantities, like it used to be
- Local, community based network of small independent beekeepers.
- French and Euro-regional harvest area.

 

HEATHLY & GOOD FOR THE BEES

- Gentle harvest method that does not stress the bees.
- Harvested without chemical repellents.
- Bees are given plant-based or homeopathic treatments rather than antibiotics.

 

RESPECT FOR NATURE'S BOUNTY

- Harvested when mature (no dehumidification), respecting the fundamental cosmic rhythms of nature. 
- Manual uncapping using a knife.
- Unpasteurised, not heated above 35°C (95°F) (the hive's natural temperature).
- Placed in jars by hand on site in the honey house.
- Energised honey: long macerations and manual blending that subtly reinforce natural properties.

Taster's comments

Alder buckthorn honey has a delicate fragrance and a fruity, balsamic, very slightly aromatic flavor.
 
 Relatively clear when put in jars, it becomes reddish brown after crystallisation. Crystallisation is slow. This honey has a devoted following.

Recognising natural honey

Honey is still liquid at the time of harvest. It crystallizes naturally after a certain time, if it is not heated. White blotches may appear on the surface (especially in the winter): this is a sign that your honey is completely pure and natural. Accept them as a guarantee of authenticity!
